Unless you are an A&P with AI or know one that will sign off your work, this is not an E/AB. The 7AC is a certified aircraft.

This really doens't belong on a Homebuilders web site.

The Champ is quite a bit less demanding to restore compared to a Piper J-3, has better performance and cost is less for the restoration. You can restore this aircraft and apply for an AP rating and do your own inspections. It's not that
big of a deal. You would still have to work under the direction of an IA. for inspections over the duration of the rebuild.
The information is in FAR/AIM, unless the Feds have changed their rule.

There are a few pieces of wood on the fuse but not that labor intensive. This airframe can also be built as the L-16 version and would be a great observation platform.

A 7AC was my first airplane, it is a honest little plane. Hand prop, heel brakes, stick control, brakes are cable controlled (stock) and I had to re-adjust them after nearly every flight with my instructor (he used them a lot) but I could get several flights between adjustments solo and after getting better with the plane. I always wanted to convert to hydraulic brakes.

Indeed, every cable/mechanical brakes I've flown I always wanted to convert to hydraulic brakes.
