Hi,
I am new to these forums. I have been fascinated with motorized bikes for some time, being the weekend gearhead that I am :devilish:
I am considering building a motorized bike or trike, and a little research is in order.
Looks like a great forum to learn and make new friends on!!!!!

Hey welcome to the NH party! I've been riding my motorized bikes in the Monadnock region for about 3 years with no problems from the local PD. I'm not quite sure if these things require registration as a moped or motor driven cycle in our state yet though. I haven't seen any laws that specifically describe them but im planning to visit the Milford DMV/state police HQ to see what their legal status is. If you're planning on riding in higher traffic or more urban areas I would suggest the same. I'll post in the "Laws and Legislation" section when I find out for sure what are laws are. But so far I've only had pleasant waves from my local patrolmen.

The closest thing I can find on NH.Gov is a "motor-driven cycle"
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/XXI/259/259-65.htm
"CHAPTER 259
WORDS AND PHRASES DEFINED
Section 259:65
259:65 Motor-driven Cycle. – ""Motor-driven cycle'' shall mean any motorcycle or motor scooter with a motor which produces not to exceed 5 horse-power, and any bicycle with motor attached, but not including mopeds.

Source. RSA 259:1, XIV-a. 1967, 415:3. 1976, 4:6. 1981, 146:1, eff. Jan. 1, 1982."

So when inquiring about the law you should probably refer to your bike as such.
