Moped's can only have 2HP 50cc or smaller engines that can do up to 35mph. Now here is the rub, I think it varies from community to community on how they crack down on these motorized bikes...
I went ahead and registered mine as a moped. Hint: don't ask the secretary of state questions. Fill out the form, bring it in like you know what you are doing. Use your bikes serial number. This is how I handled it. I did make it legal with lights brakes mirrors and horn. So far I have not had any trouble.
