Well...bicycles are not outlawed, just motorized bicycles appear to be very heavily regulated. Unfortunately, Ohio is a very conservative state.

After hearing from BikeGuy Joe, I am going to take my chances as well. I already made a small investment and ordered the cheap 80cc kit off Ebay this morning. I'll paint the engine to match the frame color of my bike to not draw as much attention. I'll keep it around 25 mph and cut the engine if I see cops. I'm not too concerned at this point about them aggresively enforcing the statute. Given $4+/gal gas prices, I hope they will understand.
