    When I move back to Texas I will be offering fully assembled motorized bikes that have everything needed to be street legal. You can see what all they will have at www.dragonfly75.com/jaguar/mbikes.html

    Will you be offering a motorized bike with a GT LTS replica frame with front and rear disk brakes?

    Fabian you are real funny. What kind of nut-case would pay the shipping cost of sending a motorized bike to Australia? I hope all fingers aren't pointing to you. :)
    Just buy a local bike with this type of suspension and have a welder mount the shock on top of the frame and extend the connection between it and the rear wheel.

    Jaguar my advice to you is to avoid using the phaze "Street Legal". The laws very greatly from state to state. So what may be legal in one state may not be in another state.

    The state of Texas uses a manufacture's list for mopeds which gets updated every 90 days. So you can't call your bikes mopeds.

    Here is what Texas law will allow you to operate on the public roadways.


    Sec. 551.351. DEFINITIONS. In this subchapter: (1) "Motor-assisted scooter": (A) means a self-propelled device with: (i) at least two wheels in contact with the ground during operation; (ii) a braking system capable of stopping the device under typical operating conditions; (iii) a gas or electric motor not exceeding 40 cubic centimeters; (iv) a deck designed to allow a person to stand or sit while operating the device; and (v) the ability to be propelled by human power alone; and (B) does not include a pocket bike or a minimotorbike.

    So as you can see the bikes you're talking about won't even be legal in Texas.

    A 48cc 200W one speed motorized bicycle with no more top speed than 30mph, with headlight and taillight are probably the minimum standards for "street legal" in most States. But even in Texas, which is considered a strict State legal wise, the cops aren't enforcing every legal requirement. There are always exceptions though and it is recommended that people investigate the situation in their State first, and maybe even talk to a policeman about it.

    The main reason for not using the phaze "Street Legal" is to avoid law suites. If you sell someone something as street legal and its not where they live; you could be sued if they get a ticket. If you plan to build outside of your state then know your customer's local laws.

    Running a business involves a lot more than just building bikes. I wish you well with this and hope you prosper.

    I don't want a bike that has been hacked about and then patched back together.

    I am the nut you talk about who wishes to send (from the United States) a professionally manufactured frame, designed from the word go as a GT LTS replica and this "nut" "will" be sending a motorized bicycle frame (less engine and running gear componentry) to Australia.
