You still have the possibility of buying a "Legacy" LSA - such as one of the older tail draggers or an Ercoupe (the choice I ultimately settled on). They are all getting harder to find and some (such as the Cub) are pretty slow and often pricey. Also, most of them are fabric covered. I finally bought a 'Coupe because it is the only one with a tri-cycle landing gear and it is fairly easy to learn to fly. It is also faster than most Legacy with the 85hp engine. They do come with fabric wings, but the rest is aluminum. There are still quite a few out there, but you have to watch out about the corrosion issue and STC history (if it has ever been "upgraded" for gross beyond 1320, you can never bring it back to LSA standards). The 1946 415C is the most common one people fly in the LSA category. I bought mine for under 20K and flew it home (with my CFI). We had inspected carefully for corrosion and it didn't have any. During my first annual, we found some glitches and some ADs that had not been done. Also, the engine was said to have rust in the cylinder bores, so I wound up spending for an overhauled one. (Still not sure I needed that, since the engine and oil pressure seemed fine before.) That all added to the cost so I now have about $40K invested, but the plane flies well and now has all the basic avionics goodies needed for VFR cross country flights (radio, transponder, GPS). With the 'Coupes very predictable landing characteristics, and much less to worry about with cross-wind landings, passing my check ride was easy. I often wish I had bought one earlier in my training cycle - as my instructor advised.
