Just one? Hmm ... cent symbol and L-with-bar? If polygraphs are OK, I might use <cx cxl>. Or maybe just <x xl> to save space. And if the letter x is out of the question, how about <qh ql>? But then again, this depends a lot on what's your orthography otherwise like so far.

/L\_r/, or if you want the unvoiced one (I'd guess so) /L\_r_0/. Z-SAMPA (the ZBB-born extension of X-SAMPA) uses /V\ F\/. John Vertical
