Default Gyro Grave Yards? Spare Parts?

Does any know if there are any Airplane Parts Yards that would have or do have Gyrocopter parts. I am needing to purchase a Dan Parham Horizontal Stabilizer with a tall tail for my gyro refit. Otherwise I am going to have to fork out over $2K for brand new. Anyone have any Rudders / Stabilizers for sale?

I have some parts including a damaged but rebuild able tail. If you are interested drop me a line and I will send pictures and details. What price range are you in?

Please send me pics of tail; I am interested. Harry is wanting the old tail that originally came on my gyro that he sold to Jay McCauley. Jay had fabricated a fiberglass one, but it adds too much weight to they gyro and I need to shave lbs off of it.

you can also call me: 817-992-1822.
