V.B. I went back and read your original post and I really don't see anything out of line. You commented (factually) about the ACTUAL value vs the "invested" value. You invited the "seller" to compare other aircraft of similar value. And you asked the important question of exactly what category the aircraft was in.
I am involved on a few other forums. On one of those forums we often see people wanting / trying to sell vehicles for way above what they are worth. Those of us who are knowledgable often advise the seller that they are out of range. Some take offense, some take note.
Thank you for the contributions that you DO make to this forum. Dennis

You guys are a tough crowd.... what's wrong with just offering a restraint requiring "Good Luck"?

Sometimes experience and knowledge , if used in a know it all format , can be appeared as a Turd without wings . I have felt exactly what the Original poster here is feeling . I'm sure he didn't expect to have his hair set on fire and walk away unwanted . That is certainly is not what forums are meant to be like . I personally have no interest in the type of aircraft that he's trying to find a home for but there are several out there that might have answered his post in a positive manner . Maybe not now . Think about it .

Turd is a long time, well respected participant here. Pretty sure that he has wings.
I have felt exactly what the Original poster here is feeling .
Most of us have posted things that others have, rightly, taken pot shots at. I encourage the OP to get over it, stick around, and get to know some of the old regulars and newbies here. Its a tough crowd, but the range of knowledge and relevant experience is amazing. Especially VB, in areas totally unrelated to HBA.

I prefer the blunt honesty found on this forum over subtle comments elsewhere that satisfy Emily Post.

Contact me through a PM for further details.

Why ? What are you trying to hide?
Edited to add sorry I was late to the party I didn’t realize that Had been covered.
This is addressed of the world Natile P but I find it aggravating when somebody starts a thread with the interest of everyone and then makes all the responses private.
Why should each of us have to p.m. someone to drag the details out of them?

When I sell some thing I’m looking for the 1% willing to pay the most
I’m really not looking to have people P on that parade and reduce that one percent to zero

Who let the dogs out ? That's what I would have felt as a first time poster . So , what's the problem with ( blunt honest Turd ) ?

The cost of parts, the cost of construction, or what someone previously paid for it (a car, an airplane, a computer, a cell phone) has precisely zero effect on the market value or the value to a potential buyer five minutes later.

Wait, aren't you supposed to tell us how much you paid for the plywood, to support your modest trade proposal?

Hell, I know what plywood is worth, that's why I build in aluminium!

Aluminimum too is priced like platinum, and it's not even gold colored, much less gold plated.

Well I have pricey Aluminum , with tons of #30 drill holes everywhere.

If you missed that last great Ultracruiser deal .... here's another that likely makes the weight requirements:

That UltraCruiser in the Barnstormers listing above looks pretty nice.

But just for reference, perhaps to 'clear my name' just a little, one of my home EAA chapter members just bought a 150HP Tri-Pacer, about the same very high level of cosmetic condition, for the same asking price that's in the Barnstormers ad for the UltraCruiser.

So although they are of course completely different airplanes, with admittedly different advantage/disadvantage balance, IMHO there is still a valid comparison to be made regarding "how much airplane" you can get for X dollars.
