    Unmolested stock Avid wide gear
    I have a set of stock Avid Mark IV landing gear. This is the wide gear which as far as I can tell is near 3” wider than the standard gear. This gear has never been used or drilled. Someone asked me about these awhile back but I lost the message. $200 OBO.

    The real problem you are going to run into is finding an engine mount. I just sold my 912 firewall forward and they are just something you don't find anymore. You might email Mark at Avid and see what he is able to help you with. You may be able to modify your cowl. The oil cooler is another thing that will needs made. They really stuff those things in there.

    It’s no more work (paperwork) building from a kit versus building from parts. In fact it’s less if the kit has changed hands because you have to prove a paper trail of ownership. When you check the built from parts box all that goes away and you are still building it from parts. The FAA does not care about where all the parts come from nor do you have to prove where they come from. It all get the same inspection in the end.
    Would I take a completed flying plane and de-register it to save $200 a year.....no. It’s a lot of extra paperwork and I feel it’s always a good idea to have another set of eyes look over the airplane. 
    Just me two pennies.

    I went through this a year ago. You probably got your answer but here it is in short. If you plan to use the old registration you won’t be issued a repairmans certification. Luckily mine had never been registered so I took pictures and proved 51%. 
    I’ve know people in your shoes that have de-register the aircraft, rebuild and plane, re-register as it was build from parts (no need for bill of sale from anyone), proved 51% and was able to obtain a Airworthiness Certification and a Repairmans Certification.
