I finally received the Doug Bell tailwheel fork that I ordered a couple years(!) ago. I was one of the first RV builders to place an order for one of these upgraded forks, but since the one-man production shop's output is limited, I kept giving up my delivery slot to people who were closer to flying than I was. But now that I actually need to get the airplane up on its wheels for good, I told him to go ahead and ship it to me.
Much has been said about the Bell tailwheel before, so I won't repeat it. Suffice to say that it is well made, easy to install, and way ahead of the stock Van's tailwheel when it comes to ground clearance. Not to mention that Doug has a payment policy of "I'll ship it to you so you can try it out, and you can either send it back or send me a check." You don't see that very often.
