Thanks, Guys!

For a unfinished pup, I would say its a bit high. Flying examples are usually listed for that price and less. Without knowing anything thing else about it, I would have to look at two things. The first being that it is close to me where I would not spend another 1500 to pick it up. The second is that the workmanship would have to be second to none. Homebuilt projects are usually only worth what the engine and avionics are worth used. The pups are pretty popular and to me this drives the price a little higher than normal.

Brian, thanks for the input. It's only about 200 mile from my house, so I won't have to go too far. The engine is supposed to only have some run-in time on it, but I'll check it over thoroughly. From the information I have gathered, the wings need to be mounted and the aircraft needs to be rigged. The quality of the construction and the covering will really determine what my final offer will be. It looks very nice from the photos, but I won't know for sure until I see it in person. I'll take my construction manual and drawings with me for reference when I check it out.
