    WTB - Supercub

    Thought Iíd found a good one but seller changed his mind so Iím back on the hunt. If anyone knows of one not listed on the usual sites Iíd appreciate a heads up. Lightweight 160hp not too modded up would be my preference. Thanks

    The one in Canada looks good. I imagine inspecting it and registering it here would be nearly impossible anytime in the near future.

    It's like a new pick up, the first one hurts the worst. Joe already caught the hanger door with the wing tip so it is already broke in. It's all downhill from there.

    It depend when you need it flying, near future is 1 week or 1 month? If my super cub could interest you, send me a PM or an email, I think it could be possible to make it fast! I can deliver

    Iíve seen one sold here maybe 7-8 years ago for 100k, the paint was 10/10, interior 10/10, something really clean, but the frame was corroded on 4 feet in the tail... it have finished with lawyers

    Mine needs some touch up on paint that Iíll do before delivery but nothing is corroded, it have been rigorously maintained.

    There are some Super Cubs out there that look really nice on the outside but not so good inside.

    I thought Kevin was gonna have a public confessional, video and all.

    Been renting - was planning to build a carbon cub - too much work and not enough time. Easing back into the market for a completed carbon cub, an experimental supercub, or a unicorn 55-59 one hundred and eighty. Worst decision of my life was selling the millenium cucumber! Sure do wish I still had her. I hope to see you soon. Maybe see ya at the breaks? Good luck in your search for a cub.

    Iím guessing sellers might be a bit more flexible to sell right now.
    I know Smiling Jimís nicely appreciated Carbon Cub Sales up in the Maine Potato Plains has one, and then Marky Marks Cub Connection next to the Saratoga Horse Track has a bunch. Probably a few more across the country as well. And thereís a few of us looking to build for someone too.
