Tail surfaces don't look like typical old Schweizer, so the 1-19 is out. An old old old Briegleb BG-6? One of you cheapskates better man up and plunk down the five hundred, this may be a good barn find. fly2kads likes this. 2.

The tail placement doesn't look right for either a TG-1 or a BG-6, either. Dang, I may have to break out my old books later. Definitely worth checking out! 3.

Both have excellent specs. https://images.app.goo.gl/CS1tJHgznPc7SSsb9 4.

It's almost certainly some sort of one-off. The horizontal stabilizer looks a bit like LK10 parts, so we might find that it's made up out of cut-down surplus training glider parts from WWII.

But the cockpit looks like a high wing or high shoulder wing with high cockpit rails on the side. That is what led me away from the LK-10. I sure wish Raul Blacksten or Doug Byard were on this forum, we'd have an answer in a NY second. Danny Pierson might know but he is not often online. I tried sending Ross Briegleb an e-mail through his website, asking if it looks like one of the early BG series, but I have no idea how often he checks that e-mail. Bill H thank you for going. If you don't want it then please feel free to spread the word in the vintage saialplane community. Somebody will want to save this. I also sent this to Wayne Spani (a well known vintage glider guy) Last edited: Jun 19, 2019 7.

I plead brain damage, resulting from watching too many adult films. TerryM76 likes this. 9.

He replied it's a home-built with a wooden fuselage, and he wouldn't fly it. So I think I'll pass on looking at it. Bill 12.

Turns out we apparently drove "right past" it on the way here. I contacted the seller to try to stop by on the way home. The asking price had been reduced to$375 on Craigslist. Turns out he messaged me back that it is sold. I'm disappointed to not have the chance to see it.

So, VB, you've gotten at least part of your wish. Some "mug" ended up with it, we just don't know if it was an HBA "mug". LOL
