The Cozy Girrrrls webpage says that they have the bushing available now and they're working on the rest of the hardware.

I don't know how up to date it is (hopefully more so than their project status!)

When Amy & I visited with them, Chrissi shared with us her plans. I don't remember the details, but do remember thinking that is would be a significant improvement over the previous version. I'm sure its just a matter time for them to get it designed and manufactured.

What's missing? The castor? Wheel? Tire? Norm Muzzy posted a note on Marc's list earlier this year regarding a midwest supplier of tailwheel assemblies which uses the same wheel as a cozy. Norm felt it should make a good substitution. Find the mail via the archives, follow the link to the supplier.

I beleive Wilhelmson bought all the tooling from Brock. He does make the long eze/ cozy nose wheel and fork assem. don't know about Cozy 4. The wheel is available from Alasken bushwheel Co. spruce has the tires . Cheif aircraft sells the wheel and tire assem. for about $350
This is my opinion of these facts and only my opinion, your opinion may vary

Much better with a Dremel than a computer.
What if they gave me choice between a fast computer or a fast plane?
