Two 5 gallon portable gas bags made by Alaskan Bushwheels

I have two 5 gallon bags made by Alaskan Bushwheels, never used in excellent new condition.  I rigged up a spout on one, just add a threaded 1" PVC elbow, lay it on the wing and fill your tank.  These go for $100 new....$50 each and would like to sell together.  They don't take up a lot of room and will come in really handy on any long adventure.  You pay for shipping.  Check out this link:…See More

Unfortunately I have decided to sell my Cruzer CH750 project.

Don,   I have questions regarding your straight stick set up.   Messages don't seem to get to me on this forum lately not sure why.  Can you email me please at   Thanks.   Charlie Rosenzweig Magnolia KY.

Thanks Don.  Hope you get done sooner than a year.  Cheers...

Hi Don,

   sorry I missed your question earlier.  Yes, the idea is to tap the lower tube, and screw through the edge of the shelf and the bottom edge of the instrument panel.  If I need to get at the components, I back out 16(?) screws, and pivot the shelves down to where I can see what I'm doing ;)

Your rudder bearings are a terrific idea.Subconsciously I thought that the Zenith arrangement was not very good but did not have the presence of mind to create a fix. Including the Mc Masters Carr is icing on the cake.

Many Thanks.

Here's a picture of one of my rotors. I also used a right angle die grinder with a scotch bright pad to remove anodizing from the friction surface. If I were to do this again I would use a smaller bit and more hole's.

Don -

Tks for the info on the switches.   And you crashed your plane ?  Dare I ask ?

Thanks Don, I am on the edge of getting my air worthiness done. Yes, I was drafted August of 1967 after jump school I went to RVN ended up in Co F 51Inf. long Range Patrol. How is your build going? If you have any questions, I might be able to help.

Happy to talk about the Lycon pistons.  Not sure I will be able to off too much real world experience as the airplane is soooo close but not quite flying yet.

Hi Donald,
The design of the ribs/wing will get you over 100mph... The engine will pull the weight of the plane over the threshold. Bob McDonald flew the Ch750 with a 912ULS close to 100mph. The cleaner Cruzer with the 912uls should get you over the 100mph.
Also, the more power available, the faster you can go IF the wing platform will permit it.
