AFAIK, ebikes under 750w are allowed. https://bwanh.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/NH_Ebike_Laws_20191011_PDF.pdf

I believe bwanh.org is a reputable source but not sure
Though the things listed in the site you provided are probably accurate, it still didn't list the actual legal statutes. Often sites mislead you because they're trying to sell you something. In my state Tennessee the primary legal statute for motorized bicycles is TN 55-8-101(35). Look up your state's transportation statutes.

NOPE, no propane either, it must be pure electric power provided by battery/batteries only.
Where does a Stirling engine fall? I'm getting desperate, man

Let me give you an example of a legal loophole. In my state Tennessee a motorized bicycle has to be 50cc or less, it also must have an automatic transmission system meaning the operator can't manually shift engine/motor driven gears. So I built a bike that shifted engine driven gears automatically.

Over meaning it's legal or illegal? Stirling engines require no internal combustion and can be run on solar
OVER! Especially if it's on a bike.
Chainlube was joking, you said where does it "fall", he answered "over" as in fall over...lol...looking at the height and weight of that I would tend to agree...lol.
