With that said, PM AZBill he is our resident expert on AZ Motorized Bicycle laws.

Whatever the outcome, nothing is better than sharing a common interest with you son.

Can't wait to see your build and wishing you much success on your next one.
Well, we can always plead ignorance the first time and probably get off with a warning. He won't be riding without me, because these things simply go too darn fast.

Besides, he looks 18 - he's 15 1/2 and already taller than me, LOL.

Picture of the bike is up on the Mountain Bike forum. It's the Diamondback Wildwood thread.

Fun to ride, but 4 hours a day (2 there and 2 back) is a bit much for me. I think I'll ride it to a bus stop and take a bus from there each day, otherwise this thing's gonna leave me achin'.
