    I'm not really sure where I'm going with this but I'll throw it out there to see if there's any interest... as many of you know I crashed my Starduster last week. I would like to rebuild it, but I don't have the space to work on it. And selling it would get me back in the air a lot sooner. So anyway, I expect to sell it, either complete or possibly broken up.

    The damage appears to be limited to the upper right wing, fuselage from the fin back (and of course the fin/rudder itself) and the left landing gear, though everything will have to be stripped to be sure. One cabane strut is bent, but the forward fuselage looks fine, including the landing gear attach points. The wing attach bolts came out easily, a good indication nothing is twisted there. All of the streamline wires are intact. Engine is an O-290G with flange reinforcement, electric starter & alternator, about 400 SMOH, undamaged I believe as I stopped the engine before I touched down and the prop (71×60 metal) is undamaged. Normal steam panel, com radio, mode C transponder with encoder. Cleveland wheels and brakes.

    I have no idea at this point what it's all worth but I'll entertain offers or suggestions. Rather not break it up but it could well be worth more that way?

    FWIW, I agree, take the fastest possible path to get back in the air, at (nearly) all costs. Having a six month or one year hole in your logbook is a larger loss than anything mechanical or even financial.
