Doug Bell’s original design for an improved tailwheel assembly on Van’s RV aircraft. You’ll see dramatically improved obstacle clearance and ground handling with this simple modification. Easy install retrofit installation into standard sized Van’s-style tailwheel assemblies.

For more information on installation, maintenance, and flying with your new tailwheel, we suggest you check out our free Tailwheel Install Documents.

Includes fork, AN364-820A top nut, axle bolt and spacing washers. Bell Fork weight with axle and top nut: ~25oz (703g)

Want to Add a Tire? The Deluxe Tire and Lightweight Tire will fit perfectly.

New Purchase Option: Scratch n Dent is now available for white and black powder coating color options!  When the tailwheels return from the powder coater, a few come back with less than pristine coats.

Functionally – the tailwheel works just as great, but there is a blemish or two. We now have the option for you to buy the Scratch n Dent versions of our tailwheel for $15 less. A brand new tailwheel for a discounted price!

Very nicely made and easy to fit. Much better wheel clearance and a better view over the nose.

Perfect fit on my my RV-4. Haven’t flown it yet but the rudder pressure required on taxi seems significantly less than the Vans tailwheel and somewhat better feeling of control

The tail wheel could be a little bit lighter....

Installed new fork with deluxe tire and steering link. All I can say is my RV7 handles so so much better now. I could not be more please with all of it. Thanks Blake for great customer support as well.
