these are legally motorcycles right? I was under the assumption that it has to be motor assisted pedal drive. If you don't have pedals then it is a motorcycle to the dmv. Might be different in oregon. Also, are those the foot rests drilled into the frame?

in Oregon . 80cc and more you need motorcycle endorsement , 50cc to 80cc you need a drivers license , under 50cc you must be eligible to get your license but you don't actually have to have a license . and vehicle does not need to be license . ive really never had a problem . i just did a virtual test ride of this bike on youtube click the link below to see this bike

ok, seems there is a bit of disambiguation of the law in CA. does anyone know if it would be legal for someone to ride on of these in California? (because it has no pedals) Also, upon further review it looks like the right crank arm was hack-sawed off. Seems a little dangerous having a sharp piece of metal spinning at a high speed. Although a fender could take care of that problem. Great idea by the way, one of the more simpler rear derailleur mechanisms and it also freewheels, right?

California Law

Hi CA. Motorized Bicycle law is in part:
No pedals=no moped
No moped=not legal motorbike
No Pedals=Motor-Driven cycle
Motor-Driven Cycle= Mininum 47.00 per year license, AND insurance AND motorcycle license

It is written:
"capable of human propulsion, i.e. pedals"
"less than 2 gross brake HorsePower"
"less than 30 mph on level ground"
"Maximum of a 2-speed automatic transmission, incapable of being manually shifted"

There is more, but I cannot see how we need any more?

Mike
