American Legend Aircraft has formed the Texas Sport Aircraft Company to offer a kit similar to the Legend Cub. For legal and liability reasons, the company, co-located with American Legend, is separate from the light sport operation. It costs about half the price of the production aircraft, a spokesman said. The current base price of the production model is $84,785. Builders can certify to a gross weight of 1,320 pounds, then fly under the sport pilot regulations. Or the Texas Sport can be certified with a higher gross weight of 1,600 pounds and be flown as an experimental. The Texas Sport is similar in appearance to the Piper Cub, utilizing a J-3 wing design, PA-11 struts, and outboard wing attachments like the PA-18 Super Cub. Like the Legend Cub, the airframe features a 3-inch wider cockpit, providing a noticeably larger cabin. Additionally, fuel is stored in the wings, allowing for solo flight from the forward seat. The Texas Sport comes with a choice of PA-11-style closed cowl or J-3-style "eyebrows."

Now this sounds interesting! I'd love to see some pics and find out what engines are available.
