40. I bought a $40 scooter last month...
It's a little 80's Yamaha "Jog" with a small 50cc 2 stroke motor, and the plastic is bad in spots, but I got the headlight working and the motor starts and runs OK, so I'm set to go. I learned to ride bikes on a Vespa in the 60's, and have had innumerable bikes since, but this little "putt-putt" wil be perfect for going up to the Post Office with my eBay packages to ship out every week. I've had a motorcycle endorsement on my license forever, might as well put it to good use.
Good luck with the new Honda, put some synthetic oil in the crankcase after it's broken in.
