Default Monocoupe 90A Ikon west

I have been give an IIkon West kit of a Monocoupe some parts are missing but I have the plans so I can cut these of the plans. But the instruction book is missing and it is hard to identify parts as they are not shown on the plans. Would any one have the instruction book for this and could it be scanned to PDF so I can print it out.
It would be great if someone could help me out here.

Default Re IKON N''West Monocoupe kit: Got Instrucion Book 4 U

Hi cutarug;

Greetings 2 U from Wickenburg. 'Arizona; da 'Roping Capital of da World'

I noted you request for the instruction booklet for this kit, checked my vast kit inventory, and found I have said kit too, located in safe storage within the confines of my secret kit cave, guarded by vicious 2 and 3 headed pit bulls and similar rattle snakes. You must be brave to enter dis cave; well at age 73. I'm brave I guess, as at this age you have to be brave to survive the realities of old age. Short story long! The kit does have an instruction booklet, + a large 18" x 12" or so double sided photo instruction sheet, and I would be happy to copy and email said copies 2 U possibly tomorrow or next 24 hours anyway. Do U need the photo instruction sheet also, let me know, [my email address below]/please email me yours OK.

I noted the weight of dis kit, it's heavy, I hope it builds into a lighter aircraft, as I would like to power mine wid electric, but then there are some big>huge electric motors available now, so the electric conversion should be a snap.

Will close for now, dere folks, a'nudd'r problem solved, Who's next? I enjoyed helping U out, best regards from the ole wild western frontier town of Wickenburg. Arizona, USA,

I had a G-38 on the nose of my 90A. It balanced perfectly, but was over powered., for my sedate flying style. I'm guessing that the model was in the 18 pound range. It flew very well.

I felt that the original landing gear was weak. I suggest that any prospective builder should use something else. I purchase a gear from TnT, designed for the Kange Monocoupe.
