Hello in Columbia, SC...from Doug in Panama City, Fl.....Neodynamics is NOT the right site...Its the first one on your post...biketomopedkit.com...somewhere in Michigan....A friend visiting Chicago found there ad in a magazine....that how I became aware of these engines....
Q- What is meant by street legal; and is this bike street legal? A- Street legal defines a vehicle that is legally allowed to travel on the streets. This motorized bicycle kit is street legal in all states. Some states require license and registration for a factory made moped, but a customized bicycle is considered pedal assist by federal law.
In new york state, it is illegal to drive a motorized bicycle (bicycle with helper motor attached,) on any street/parking lot/roadway, etc., where cars drive. There are also issues in several other states (IL, WA) which may make it impossible to legally ride. And, there is NO federal law regarding motorized bicycles. There was a proposed federal regulation, that, AFAIK, was never implemented.
His blanket statement that is it street-legal in all 50 states is flat-out wrong.
There's some other items in their FAQ that's really stretching the truth beyond where it should go. Almost no maintenance for a year, for instance...
The $299 for the whole kit with engine seems good, and showed a friend looking to motorize a bike. Is there any cheaper way to get the engine and sprockets so I could build it myself on to the friend's bike?
i bought from them... they were very nice.. seemed to be a guy working out of his kitchen.. and was expensive.. the engine is solid though and does work. but if you can shop around i would.. the upgraded version is a must tho. good luck
