Not much is known about this kitemaker, John Long, Bedford, Texas, but we were presented this replica Cody by his mother, Janet Long, after he was killed in a car accident.
This is a wonderful reproduction of a standard Cody War Kite, made of beige riptop and spars of bamboo.
The back cell is 53 inches x 25 inches and the front cell is 54 inches by 25 inches. There is one broken bamboo spar, that needs to be fixed, but the kite can be assembled.
