Default Re: Howdy from Jersey!

Here's what New Jersey 39:1-1 says:

"Motorized bicycle" means a pedal bicycle having a helper motor characterized in that either the maximum piston displacement is less than 50 cc. or said motor is rated at no more than 1.5 brake horsepower or is powered by an electric drive motor and said bicycle is capable of a maximum speed of no more than 25 miles per hour on a flat surface.

You'll also have to register it as well but as long as you aren't over 50 cc and don't go over 25 mph you may be in luck. Also 39:4-14(3a) is the starting point most of section 14 is on motorized bicycles in New Jersey law.
