  1. Hey Shawn, I wanted to say thanks for your knowledge on the issues I was facing with the 2009 SC. I just closed the deal this morning and talking about the TruTrak issues provided ample ammo to negotiate another $13k off the asking price. I also had a Rotax mechanic spend 4 hours combing through everything and besides a little bit of rubber everything is mint! Looking forward to clocking some serious hours in my new to me aircraft. Merry Christmas! - Louis

I’m still very interested in the plane, going to try to negotiate the price lower due to the concerns you have mentioned and the fact it’s been on the market for quite some time.

Looking through the log books there does not appear to be any prop strikes and there have been rubber changes at 5 years intervals which is great. I have a small retail business with 4 locations all approx 70 miles apart. I have specifically opened all locations near small airports. My master plan is to check in on my stores on nice flying days and have a small folding bike or E-bike fly with me. Do you think the SC will fit
  4. Update: Sorry I’m new to this, on closer inspection of the log books it appears the work as been done. I would still love to hear any opinions on the purchase and any pitfalls I should look out for. Thanks
  5. Hello, I’m new to the SC community and have really enjoyed reading through the posts to get some much needed insight. I’m looking at purchasing a 2009 SC. I have attached the link to the ad for anyone to view. https://www.barnstormers.com/classified-1518860-2009-Sport-Cruiser.html I have a few questions, It doesn’t appear to have had the nose gear replaced, how much of an undertaking is that in terms of time and $$. Secondly it only has 228 total hours. What are the main concerns that I should be looking at with an SC that has sat in a hanger most of its life. This is the o
