Default Re: hello from ontario

A gas motor on a bicycle is illegle in Canada. Transport Canada says so.
Want to argue with them and you can enjoy that ride.
If the local police don't bother you, great. When they do, not so great.

My understanding is in BC the maximum fine is $5,000 fine, 2 years in jail, lose your license, insurance sky rockets and they take your motorized bicycle. Your on an uninsured, unlicenced , unregistered motor vehicle.
Mine's electric.

Want to swap a vin# off a moped on to your MB? That will buy you some very serious federal jail time. Seem tampering with the vin# really ticks them off.
