Good Day to everyone,
I have just found a biplane that is wonderful for me and I will have to let my cub go in order to buy it.
This is the first day and first time offering it.

I can list what I remember from my mind, if the exact # are needed I will pull out the books.

The first $33000 gets the plane now!

Around 1400 hours on engine, 78/79 on all cylinders last annual, metal cruise prop (near new), cranks on first hot turn, runs great and strong. Spin on filter. Front tank only. Sealed struts, landing gear and plane is rigged for maximum gross wt. Inside wings look like new. Original type wheels and brakes, brakes work fine. Scott tail wheel.
I keep her under my hanger at my home and fly her about every two weeks, but around 30 hrs a year.
