Priced about right--maybe even underpriced--for what it has.  I do not like light-colored cockpits though.  They can reflect up into the canopy.  Know why the Russians use those puky-blue cockpits?   🙂

I noticed that this airplane, N25ED, which was discussed more than a year ago,   https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=66835      and seen again here just recently, is on ebay with a buy-it-now price of $16,500.    https://www.ebay.com/itm/255569294004?    See history in the CZ post.  Lots of repairs done but a lot of work to go.  Fair price, I suppose, with the O-235 included.  Sell the engine as-is for $4k and get the rest for say, $12.5K.  Whadaya think Buppy?  Make sure the seller has good title.

Sure seems like a lot more than cosmetic work.

LONG EZ PROJECT NO ENGINE • $9,800 • OR BEST OFFER! • This is a complete aircraft minus the engine. The owner passed and I ended up with the plane. It's 650 airframe time according to the Hobbs meter. It needs mostly cosmetic work and just a going through (replace instruments clean control connections etc). It sat outside for a few years, hence the reason to go through it. The canopy is in great shape. It had an O-320 E3D engine. Text me for pics you want. I'm working on locating the logs. 6 seven 8 520 then 7337. Reasonable offers considered. No low balls. You'll have to haul it. I don't have time to deliver in the next 60 days.

It looks like they cut into the starboard strake in one of the pics—one not included  in your post.  That could be why it was abandoned.   Strakes can be replaced but yeah, not “cosmetic”.    I would like it better at $5K or less.   🙂

According to the chatter in the email list, this one's about 45 minutes north of me.  Most of the damage appears to be not a huge deal to repair, except for the landing gear--that looks like a lot of work...

Would have been nice to see a zoomed out picture of everything

Pics are on Barnstormers.  It looks like the wing and fuselage damage could be patched and fixed.  Not sure if the canard forces damaged the mounts but maybe the canard can be repaired too.  Replacing the strut would not be that hard.  Still, it would be a lot of work.  I am thinking maybe $15K would be a top price and maybe $8K-10K is more realistic to reflect the value of the engine and odds and ends.

today.  Only one pic in the ad.  I suppose an owner-overhaul could be OK (done one myself) but you'd want to examine what was done.  It might have been just enough work to keep it flying.   I dunno about overhauling 3200 hr cylinders but if the compressions and oil consumption are good, that would be reassuring.  Seller could have put a lot more in the ad.  😞

  Here is what the seller posted today.  Will be interested to see if he gets that for it.  (I will boost my airplane $30K!)

There are 661 hours SNEW of IFR/VFR on the plane, engine, and prop. I am asking $129,000 OBO. I have included a picture and there are several more on Trade A Plane.

Lots of good ideas and discussion seen in the latest edition (July) of Canard Owners and Builders news.    https://canardowners.com/   [subscription required]    There was a novel idea for a nose lift and a good discussion of corrosion in Vari wing-attach fittings and lift tabs.     Saw this EZ advertised.  I doubt it will sell very fast at that price.
