check the Cali laws. CT and NY are that you can drive them with a drivers licence so long as you they are under 2 HP and less than 50ccs. If they are bigger than 50 or more than 2 HP you need a drivers licence with a motorcycle endorsment

When I was 16 my dad had bought a moped from a yard sale for $40, I was allowed to drive it at 16 without a license, but you couldn't drive it if your license had been revoked. Also didn't need a helmet. A moped by law was a motorized bike with "helper pedals" that didn't go over 30mph. With a scooter, a license and helmet was needed.

law in texas is you can drive a scooter without a M license as long as the scooter can't go over 50mph.

I kind of want to get a vespa too, they are cool, and I do a lot of driving around my area, so it would be worth it.

Pocket bike! If you were allowed to drive those on the streets I would have had one years ago.

My boy used to have a real early 90's GSX-R 50. That's right......50cc's of pure power. The thing was tight. It was about 2/3 times biger than a pocket bike. It had everything on it down to the vented disc brakes. You could pop wheelies, stoppies, the whole 9. He sold it for for $500

I've tried to find one since then with no luck.

Another similar bike is the Yamaha YSR 50, very cool, I wish I could find one for about $500 with a title.

in IL you only have to be 15 to ride a scooter. I don't think any lisence is involved.

a buddy of mine has a vintage Vespa scooter... it is ok... you can pick up a ton of chicks with that thing... and you get the cool fun punk chicks when you ride that thing... not the nasty harley girls or shallow rocket girls.
