    In Florida to be street legal you must be in full compliance with RS-68. Which allows you to make a self built moped using a bicycle frame. You can't be over 50 cc, must have an automatic transmission (no manual clutch or manual shifting of engine driven gears), must have all the operating equipment that's required on a moped. You can't go faster than 30 mph. You must have a valid driver's license. The bike has to be inspected by the DMV so a moped tag can be issued.

    If you're at least 16 you can go electric you can have up to 750 watts and stay under 20 mph; no license is needed.
