Unabashed (and unpaid!) plug for cover- great job from Bruces' Custom Covers. Survived serious rain Wednesday night with nary a drop inside.

Awesome nosewheel. I am looking to fab something up for my plane similar to this but wasn't sure how to do it. Do you still have the bungee holding the strut in place or did you use some type of thrust bearing? I was thinking of using the front strut off an early 90s Yamaha Phazer or Exciter as sort of an oleo set-up, but I think I could make a lighter system using this concept. If you had any closer pictures available I'd sure appreciate being about to browse them.

Interesting nosewheel gear design. Do you have any photos showing what you did?
Cool looking plane! Congratulations getting it up and flying (and getting to Oshkosh).
