Today I took Projekt Dragonfly down to the DMV to try to get it licensed. I thought $40 for tabs at the most, and I would be out the door. You'd think I would have learned by now. The guy at the counter told me I had to register my bike as a moped. I asked him what that would take. Er.... Here is the list: *State patrol inspection *License plate fee *Weight test *$40Tab fee *Maufacturer's plates *fee for being issued a VIN number *Receipts for all my parts *Tax for the assembled machine based upon an assessed value. *notary fees *Filing fees *Filing fees *filing fees I know I left a few things out, but you get the idea. All told it would come to nearly $200 to play by the book. $40 for a moped plate is one thing, but that is quite a chunk of change for a poor college student. Especially after I've sunk around $800 and 1 year of my life into this thing already. But I see other motored bikes running around Everett. Being an honest fool, I do want to play by the rules, but this is asinine. How do the other folks in Washington get around this bureaucratic ****? Is there any way to do it even semi-legally? I've heard of people using the frame number in place of a VIN number, but is there anything else that would help? I'd hate to think I spent so much time and money on this thing, only to have to take it apart because I can't ride it. I do have a current driver's license and the bike is under 50cc.
