You are bidding on an SUPERB WW2 Royal Air Force Tail Wheel and Tire, as used only on the legendary Fairy Battle, Swordfish, and others!
Made of aluminum, steel, and magnesium, this wheel and tire is in VERY NICE used condition! Though it does shows signs of wear…marks, and scratches, it still retains all of it’s original lettering and part numbers! Rubber tire indicates 4.95 x 3 1/2, which is correct for the Fairy Battle and Swordfish…but I am not sure of the hub type. The original inner tube is present, but I have not attempted to fill it with air, so I am not sure if it holds. I have indicated it’s location in the last photos. Could need a bit of clean-up, but otherwise an EXCEPTIONALLY nice and original item for any collection, display, or restoration project!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.
——————- PAYMENT —————–
Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.
——————- SHIPPING —————–
My goal is to ship within 7 days from auction end. However, depending on circumstances, it may take up to an additional 1 week from receipt of confirmed payment. If you need it shipped sooner, please let me know and I will do our best to accommodate.
——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
