    Its displacement makes it illegal in AZ.
    A happy time is an unknown and unknowable item.
    This is marked and stamped.with its size.

    Yes, and I run 86cc.

    Mine is more noticeable because 43 is up front and the other 43 is on the rear tire.:whistling:

    FWIW, this article came from a goped forum. All gopeds are illegal and much more noticeable on the street.

    It's only Illegal if they can catch you!

  5. Gopeds are legal in many states, including mine-California.
    Gopeds are my main hobby, and that 62 cc kit is fantastic.

    They can be made as quiet as any motorized bicycle.

    Sorry captured, I didn't know. It's not legal in my state.

    Can you register them and ride on public roads?

    I ride on the highway in rush hour traffic. I'm going 38.6mph in a 35mph zone and cars just pass me by.

    I couldn't imagine riding the highway on a goped.:sweatdrop:

    Anyway, a couple years ago I considered using this G62 engine. Sadly, not pullstart, flywheel and sheetmetal was available then.

    I believe the price has dropped by $50 since then.
     
  7. Yeah, I saw that they outlawed them in 2003.
    In Ca and most states, you do not have to register them,
    and they are not allowed on roads over a 25mph limit.

    They are so much fun, but no highways for sure.
    I just take back roads and they are perfect for it.
    I even pull a trailer sometimes.....

    The G62 had a conversion kit for a long time by Trevor Simpson.
    You used the flywheel and fancover/pullstarter from a Zenoah G43l.

    You want to know an incredible motor that would work great with a MB?
    Look up the Radne Raket 120cc. Swedish motor.
    Very light weight, pull start, 15hp.
    I have a scooter with it, and it is super incredible.

    Will it fit on rack-mount friction drive?

    What size is the shaft and clutch?

    Maybe a Honda x50 clutch setup would work?
