My thoughts are that those are motorcycles by most states definitions. Also, that they are old, two stroke, valuable, and parts aren't just laying on shelves locally. I would never ride on as a primary transport or if I needed to rely on it to be somewhere.

That said, I had a Stella 150 and it was a blast at low speeds but I really didn't "enjoy" it on longer cruises. The tiny wheels, narrow tires, and short suspension made rough roads iffy. Even with a disc brake I doubted the ability to haul the bike down from speed because of it's weight even though it was the weight that made it feel more stable. One or two cars that weren't even looking my way at intersections and I realized how useless the bike would be in a panic stop.
