J-5 is not eligible to be operated under Sport Pilot (aka LSA) rules due to weight, IIRC.

I'd love a J3 project too. Ideal is finding a flying basket case so that all the parts are there...but in that condition ("airworthy') the seller usually wants too much for a plane that needs everything. A really good Cub will still require you to do lots of maint. and upgrades and spend plenty of $ every year.

J-5 is a 3-place aircraft which is not eligible as LSA.

1946 J-3 C-65 Project with all paperwork, engine C85-12 0 STOH ~350SMOH need to check the logs again, McCauley metal prop, wheels, tires, brakes, instruments, wing and nose tank, cowling, etc. Fully restored fuselage structure by 81 year old A&P (Old Timer rag, tube and wood specilist). Restored from wreck, steel tubing replaced using factory drawings including fuselage, gear, ailerons, doors, birdcage. Wings are currently being restored (new wood spars- repairded ribs-etcs). Both wings partially assembled. Needs one bay 1 drag wire (Univair or WagAero) leading edge skins, false spars, new struts, new aileron cables and covering.

Currently in Broken Arrow, OK. Lot's of options available for someone wanting customization or different engine/prop. Can sell as is or finish the way you want.
