Good evening Cortland Carrington,

My friend Harry McKay would like very much to get in touch with you because he admires your build and feels you are one of the ranking Sportster experts.

I posted a longer note on your build thread, as this is word count limited.

Harry McKay can be reached at (813) 610-8226 or email at [email protected].

Thank you, Vance Breese

mfrisbie: I read one of your posts that you are working on a SparrowHawk. How's that coming along?
Rotorhead wrote on 13brv3's profile.
interested in the landing gear
Can you share what the frame offset in inches or just the bottom of the keel to ground ?

I might be interested in your tail how tall is it and is it metal or wood ? think they came 2 sizes 68" and 54"

you can text the info to Craig Tompkins
