This historic Easy Riser ultralight was built around 1980 from an assembly kit. The builder later.
I assembled the plane for the photos and repaired and/or replaced some tubing and fabric and some of the aircraft bolts but the plane needs to be completely gone over. The successful bidder will be expected to sign a liability release that this is being sold and purchased as a non-flyable unit. The landing gear is the "cross-wind" version designed by John Moody. It comes with a full set of the original assembly drawings.
It does not have the hammock weight shift seat but a couple of styles should still be available online for around $70. The airframe kit (the wings only) was recently being sold for around $3600 so this is a way to get that setup plus motor, gear and trailer for less. The trailer has never been licensed or titled so all I can provide on it is a bill of sale but it does have a rubber roof for outside storage and tail and brake lights. I have dismantled it and replaced it in the trailer where it had been stored in a barn since the early 1980"s. It has never been flown and the motor has only been thru the run-up process but due to the age I have not fueled it up nor attempted to run it. The trailer lights work and the tires look fine for an extended road trip.
The engine is a Chrysler "Power Bee" of 8 hp although the plane can handle power up to 20 hp. Manuals for the 8 hp motor are online. The current suggested motor is a Hirth F-36 of 15 hp. The buyer is expected to make a paypal deposit within 48 hours and the balance within 14 days by either postal money order or cash. Any shipping must be arranged by the buyer however I am willing to store it a reasonable time for you if needed. thanks for looking.
This is a relisting as the former bidder did not pay or even look at the plane, bid on behalf of a friend that would not pay him and neither of them even looked at it. Please do not bid unless you are serious. I am happy to have it inspected if you send a question asking for an appointment. Current date: 2016-10-10
