Spring Loaded Avid Nosegear attachment 4 Sale

This nose gear is no longer made.  It sold for $1000 new.  They are rare.  This one was rusted at the top connection and needs repair there.

How about $250 + shipping.  Guess now I will never use it.  EDMO

That would be the last thing a Nose-dragger would do!  Ha!  EDMO

I forgot to mention, that this nose gear was also made for the Challenger - The Avid nosegear is a little heavier built, but should work for the Challenger too.  The Challenger was shown in the video which I cant find now.   The maker closed the business.  EDMO

Thanks Ed it is for a friend. Pretty sure he wants it for a Genesis. How badly rusted is it? Structural or just cosmetic?

Chris,  If I was putting it on something I would either weld it to the pivot tube or make sure no water gets in it.  I think the pivot tube was rusted enough to give way on hard landing or something - the crossbolt is still holding in the nosegear tube.  A short piece of inserted tube might be needed.  Also some minor straightening of the forks and MAYBE weld a reinforcement piece on the sides of them to make them stronger?  Otherwise, it is a useable part, and probably the last chance to ever buy one.  Ed

looks like a pretty easy part to make if they are in demand.

Easier to repair than to do all the research and testing to build one.  You couldn't build one for to sell for $250 - I doubt if you can even build one for that if you include the Grove nosewheel, tire and tube. 

These sold for $1000 originally.  EDMO

I'm a bit confused. Are the forks or any part of it bent? Still trying to understand if it is straight and structurally sound with surface rust only or bent and structurally compromised from metal lost from oxidation (serious rust)

Thanks Ed!

Maybe a couple more photos?? If its straight and structurally solid we can definitely put it to use.

Chris,  Here is about best I can do with 2 more photos - I believe it is structurally sound - legs are slightly bent and there is some rust in tip of attach tube which both can be easily fixed.  Crosstubes are sealed with Nylon plugs.  This is just the way I got it.   Extreme cold snap coming tonight for about another week - My lungs hurt too bad out in cold so have to wait until it warms up again to box and get shipping on it.  EDMO
