    If you come across a Suzuki TS185 I think it's worth a look and it's performance doesn't match it's retro looks.

    225lbs wet
    32" seat height
    85mph top speed
    Cheap(I have one bookmarked for sale @ $800 that runs/has title)
    Reliable.

    Downsides are it's a 2 stroke but is oil driven(don't have to mix/just fill it). Not that noisy either.

    I know it's not a super exciting bike but in the world of shortypants it's important to know all options.

    Just got my 5' daughter a GPX FSE250S, small frame and small wheel bike. Submitted for street title, waiting for mail. Rear tire is a 16" DOT knobby, gotta be the only one made? Might relace to a 17" rear. The 16" is so big, it's probably bigger than a reasonable 17". Also got the 21/18 wheels coming soon.
