simple floor for a aluminum storage shed

I got a 10x11 aluminum shed that does not have a floor to it, i don't want to buy the floor kit as they are cheap. I"d rather build a simple floor for it becuase it would be cheaper than the 150 bucks they want for the floor kit.
Its going to sit on #57 limestone foundation so i could level it.
Whats a simple floor plan and what type of plywood should i use and thickness. There will be my Harley sitting in there for the winter. I don't want it sitting to high off the limestone foundation.

4x4 treated post will be holding in the limestone.

Thanks Hollerdog

Before you go much further, check with your local building department about requirements (if any) in regards to a rat wall and flooring.
