    I do like the sportcruiser but I know I can get £50,000 for it, the kf7 kit I can get for £14,000 and I think that is a good deal but I can't keep them both even tho I don't have to sell the sportcruiser to free up the money it's the space . I'm very lucky that Mr friends are LAA inspectors and engineers so I only have to pay for parts and I help them do the works and then it gets signed off.

    It's a hard one as I do like my sportcruiser but as you are aware I have the avid to so I won't be without an aircraft. The thing is l want a tail wheel aircraft and I like the look of the kitfox and I could keep both in the hanger instead of one at two different airfields. I Like building and have built several aircraft.

    Kitfox 7 possible purchase
    Hi guys 
    A friend of mine has decided to put his kitfox 7 up forsale and it's still in kit form with very little work done on it, it comes with everything apart from the 912 injected engine and fabric. Do you think I should by it cause if i do then i will have to sell my sportcruiser so the question is kitfox 7 or sportcruiser.
    Thanks

    Thank you very much and it has taken a long time to do the conversion and many bespoke parts have been made along the way. I would like to turn it into a tail wheel and change the colour so no doubt I will have to re-skin it then to keep the weights down so she will be out of action for a while when I start that and I will put a new panel in her to finish off.
     
    Thank

    Hi Gfry
    I see that you have purchased Simon's avid and I sold Simon the curved rudder and fuel tank from my crashed avid and I also have a set of doors but will have a look at the door handles. Where in the UK are you and feel free to send me your number as a private message and I'll call you.
    Thanks

    Hi David 
    It's a great conversion and I have all the cad drawings for the engine mount, adapter plate and the centrifugal clutch if you need it. Where in the world are you and have you purchased an engine yet ?
