Which models of Avid have the nose wheel weldment?

Any of them if it was ordered as an option from the factory.  Of the 4 flying Avids, and 2 not flying I've had or worked on, none of them had the nosegear option installed.  JImChuk

All early Avids had the nosewheel weldment. At some point (maybe JimC knows when) for financial reasons it became an option.

Mine is s/n 90.  No nose wheel fittings.

Interesting. Maybe it was optional all along. I could swear one of the Avid company owners along the way told me they all originally came with weldments. Not the first time I've been wrong! :-)

Two Avid A models I know of didn't have the nose wheel weldment in them either.  Not sure on serial # of them right now though.  JImChuk

I think it is more confusing because if you ordered the nosewheel or convertible option(s), you definitely got the nosewheel weldment.  If you didn't, and they had a nosewheel weldment frame ready to go, you might get it anyway.

That makes a lot of sense Mark.

I have the whole nose wheel assembly with the structure needed to install it stock. I will be selling it all soon.
