Carb or fuel injected?
dirtbike or street legal?
clutch or no clutch?

you've got pit bikes from all the Japanese camps, ranging from 125cc and down to 50cc.
you've got the honda grom and kawasaki z125. A guy in the motorcycle UOA camp here posted a staggering analysis of his commuter grom; they are tough as nails:

Grom or Z125 is the way to go.

Many scooters starting from 50cc are a good option. Perfect for tooling around smile

There's nothing like the old Honda minis. I restore these but they're getting harder to find and more expensive by the day. I painted the Z50 to match my GTO for the car shows.

Those are very cool. Always wanted one but like you said they are getting hard to find and pricey.

Beautiful paint job on both bikes. I especially liked the painted chain guard.
