If you are looking for legal this is not the way to go . Something that has not been mentioned is the clutch . If you have control of the clutch , it is classified as a motorcycle and must be equipped as such . Yes it is true that only electric power assisted bicycles are allowed . You could of course equip a China Fire bike to be legal but you would be better off just going the moped route . I am in it for the coolness factor and the building and would be proud to get a ticket . ..... D.J.
