1977 WEEDHOPPER A never assembled ultralight kit that includes specially bent aluminum tubing.
A never assembled ultralight kit that includes specially bent aluminum tubing, connecting fittings, propeller and completed wing fabric envelope to make what appears to be a WEEDHOPPER Model B ultralight aircraft. My friend ordered this back in the 1970"s from an ad in Popular Science Magazine and never got around to building it. He died in 2012. I have ended up with this kit and would like to sell it to someone who could use it. The tubing is in good condition as is the fabric. Some of the wooden inserts in the tubing where bolts pass through are cracked (just the wood - see photo) due to age. The wing fabric seems 99 % good. Just a few small repairs are needed. Includes some rusty nuts and bolts installed in the tubing, but no loose hardware other than shown.
Includes an Arizona Air Sports Inc. 52" propeller with peeling varnish.
