Luscombe Tailspring for Sale

Cleaning out the garage... This tailspring came off my 1947 Luscombe 8#. I cleaned it up today, but am including a "before" photo so that you can see what it looked like. In great shape!
Wag Aero sells these for $180 new, plus shipping -- this one is $100, plus shipping.

Click on any photo for a (much) larger version. Obviously the last photo is the "before" version.

Tumblr just sent me an email to say that this blog was created 4 years ago today.

What I find more impressive is that 13 months after my diagnosis for Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, I am writing this post. They originally gave me until last May. HUGE thanks to the doctors for pushing back the cancer, and also to my family (especially my wife!) for their support.

Cancer is spiking again, so who knows where we go from here. Hopefully the blog will remain active for some time as others start their RV projects. Sorry that this blog stopped well short of completion.
