I am looking for enough good original piper ribs to build up a left wing for 90hp super cub. 620-635-2151. firstname.lastname@example.org

Good luck..most cub folks I know, including myself, would also like to have a pile of original piper ribs. I don't think all the dough$ you could gather would find you "original" piper ribs.
Using Dakota or Univar would be a more realist option, the Dakota parts are very nice!

How about Cubcrafters? They must be doing something with all the old ribs if they rebuild a cub wouldn't you think?
I've seen very few unrepaired Piper ribs at this point (for awhile I thought the flat tops were original.... :lol: ).
I really recommend you go with the Dakota or Univair product. You will be very pleased you did.
That being said, I have some Piper ribs in various condition (flat tops, some repairs), so PM me if you are interested.

Dont leave out the Carlson Aircraft STCd rib its like the Dakota cub rib I own a whole set and they are suitable.

How do the Carlson's compare price wise? I saw them at Sun & Fun a few years ago before they were certified.

I think 60 bucks each w/paperwork about 44 bucks no paperwork I bought an entire wing kit(exp. cat.) 3500 bucks which is everything. they use the same drag bracing system as the Smith cubs. this is no alierons and a J3 wing but I cut the front spars to fit PA 18 style cabin.

Will the standard Supercub tanks fit into the Carlson (Smith Cub) wing with the drag bracing system they use?
