For Sale
NIB Byron Originals Pitts Special

I have one from 1980 never assembled. Original boxes. Unopened bags of parts. Paperwork. Looks like it's complete. Rudder or Vertical Stabilizer (don't remember which) is broken and warped. Should be easy fix if you have the skills to build this thing. Not a plane guy so not much technical help here. Can deliver within about 4 hours drive of Phoenix if expenses paid. I can drag it out of storage, inventory it, and take photos, if someone is interested.

I don't know this field, and can't find any NIB Pitts sales history (must be rare in unstarted condition), but I'm thinking 1000 + actual freight...less than that and I'll consider using my wife's ebay account. I did a cursury inventory some months ago, and it appeared complete...a few loose screws in the bottom of the box. No engine, electronics, etc. Just the airframe kit opened but not started for 30 years. Photos and exact inventory soon. PayPal available.

NIB Byron Originals Pitts Special

Completed inventory and photos. Appears complete. All bags unopened. Vertical Stabilizer broken and slight warp. You could repair it, but I think I remember seeing that replacements are available...see the experts on this forum. Boxes postmarked Jan 1981. Aluminum frame taped inside box.

Do you know if the Byro-Drive is in the kit? I do not see it in any of the images. Still interested, without the drive $300.00 is a good deal.

Peace, Wolf

Original Pitts

Hi,

I have just purchased a Pitts original that needs to be repaired. However, I do not have the instruction manual. If you still have the kit, can you copy and mail or scan and email? I will pay you for your time. If you have sold the plane, can you forward this message on to the new owner or provide me with his contact info? Thanks KEN

For Sale Again

OK sorry I was gone so long. I thought I had it sold soon after I posted it, but that deal got too complicated, so I backed out. I then lost interest in selling it until now...willing to try again. Someone asked about the wings are there....yes, undamaged in the long narrow box. Everything is there and no assembly was ever started. Pick up/delivery in Phoenix or ship domestically. $450 + shipping. Paypal available
