Re: Need a bike, need an engine, but just curious in North Texas
Welcome to the forum.
A quick answer is that electric assist is legal in TX and gas is not (but it is not quite that simple).
In many communities in TX, the don't cite the gas powered bikes.
Gas bikes can be legal if you can make them conform to the goped law (gopeds are legal)
You may be able to make your gas assisted bicycle appear to be electric assisted.
