Unless it changed back again, under 80cc/35mph is a bicycle and requires no license. Any regulations referring to maximum watts are normally reserved for electric bicyles or e-bikes which in OK no longer require a drivers license.
In Oklahoma this is how a motorized bicycle can be defined.
(1) Motor vehicle>>Motor driven cycle>>motorized bicycle.
(2) Motor vehicle>>motor scooter>>motorized bicycle.
By defining it as a motorized bicycle the law allows it to be self built. Go to this site then read the following statutes.

Class requirements for driver's license
You'll then see what I'm talking about. With a self built bike you're now allowed to go up to 80 cc and 35 mph but must have a driver's license if you're over 35 cc or a 1000 watts and exceed 25 mph. You have to be over a 150 cc before a motorcycle license is required.
