A picture of the engine would have helped. From Google it looks like a 90cc Minarelli engine, if it is a two stroke, that is what it will be. Apache, Polaris and a host of others used the same engine, so carbs for them may be easier to find. Most were electric choke, is yours?

It has a oil container near the battery, looks like it mixes the gas and oil. I donít see a manual chock on it.

Yes, that looks like a Minarelli engine. Bike looks in good order, and has an electric choke. Externally the carb looks OK why do you want a new one?

The bike has been sitting since 2013 and was left with a full tank. When I took it out of storage the gas tank was bone dry. I put gas in it only to find it all leaked out next day.

Someone was saying that because the carb is pretty cheap, itís easier to just replace it.

I think that you will find that the original carb is much better than the cheapie your thinking of buying.
Carb cleaning is something that you may do a few times a year. Might as well tear into it.
Run non ethanol fuel.

Is there a rebuild kit I should use?

I remember OPT recommending "shindy" rebuild kits.
IMO, you don't need a kit, you just need to clean your carb. Dirt gets in, things get yucky.
