I saw this BD-5 on Ebay today which reminded me of a Peanuts cartoon where Snoopy thinks thoughtfully (yes, a dog can think thoughtfully) "Sometimes we do smart things and sometimes we do dumb things. One of the smartest things I every did: I never bought a Nehru jacket". One of the dumbest things I ever did was buy a BD-5 project (twice!). Here's a chap on ebay today who wants to get his hand out of the BD-5 jar but he is asking $18K so I suspect he will will be stuck a bit longer. What interests me is that he wants to sell it with no documents--not even a bill of sale! It has Canadian registry, which could likely be imported but the inspector/DAR will undoubtedly want to examine the chain of title to make sure it was not just hijacked from a Canadian hangar. Anyway, the ad had some good photos of the drive system. Glad mine is gone. If you ever want to buy a BD-5, lie down and take a nap until the urge goes away.
