I'm not sure of the site, but my bud's got one. He paid 500.00 for it, but its worth it!. It hauls @ss. But if you care about working out, I might be careful on it. It can do some pretty heavy damage to you at high speeds. I know I just stated the obvious, but sometimes that never crosses your mind until its too late. I will see if I can't find a link.

I used to race them; if you want a cheap bike look into cagllaris. They are cheap knock offs but run well and get up to about 35mph.
Everything else like Blatas and Polini are hand made, water cooled, MUCH more expensive, but get up to about 50-60mph. They run from 800 up to 5 grand for a bike. There is something weird about a 40lbs pocket bike turning out almost 10HP that is insane, especially with a 2-3ft wheelbase. They are awesome for training for riding normal motorcycles though; MotoGP riders race pocketbike in the off season because they teach body position and throttle control.
If you haven't ridden one before, get a cagllari.

Check out craigslist, they are on there all the time. Probably because people get them and realize they aren't useful anywhere. Maybe if you lived on a really big college campus they might be nice. I can't see a point in getting one that isn't street legal, and you'd probably want to wear full gear all the time since you would be tiny out there on the road. By the way my full size 750cc street bike cost $500, if that gives you an idea why I think these are a waste of money.

Agreed, get something you can ride on the street! You can find a old sports bike for 500$ of craigslist easy
