Engine type; Limbach L 2000 EB 1A 80 hp motor.The motor has 365 hours SMOH. The Hoffman propeller is in good condition. Adjustable pitch prop.The airplane has always been professionally maintained with no damage history. Avionics and maintenance were maintained through 2008, the plane has not flown since 2008. The seat covers were recently refurbished with FAA approved material (extra material included).The avionics are operable and "bones" of the airframe are in good condition. The is a perfect project for someone that has composite work experience and can paint the plane themselves.The aircraft has never been grounded. The landing struts are in good condition.The aircraft is not airworthy because it needs; the canopy replaced, composite work, paint, and the motor needs a fresh annual. Airworthiness Issues: Composite work; several sections on the wing the paint has peeled up and the fiberglass below needs to be repaired. Sections of foam within the fiberglass frame within the win will need to be routed out and repaired. Inspection of the plane is encouraged prior to bidding.Canopy Glass replaced: the airplane has a broken fiberglass canopy that must be repaired. I purchased a new piece of glass from Switzerland and had it shipped in a custom plywood crate (the canopy was $4000 and shipping FEDEX Ground was $1,500). The blown fiberglass canopy is sealed in the plywood box pictured just off the right wingtip by the shipping container. The frame of the canopy is good, however the canopy glass needs to be exchanged. I learned the hard way the only place to purchase a replacement canopy is from Grob in Switzerland.A complete paint job. Shipping: Wings are removable for transportation. Detached the wings are 30 ft long. The plane is 5.5 ft tall, 26 ft long, and 54.5 ft wide. Usable fuel is 20.6gal. Wheel base is about 6 ft., about 76 with the wheel cowlings.I"m offering to assist with transporting the plane. I have a tilt trailer the fuselage will easily roll onto.
