As far as state laws concearning these, every state is a little different... and I'm glad Texas is one of the more lenient states when it comes to these. Last time I talked to the DPS officer who comes by the shop to make sure my inspection equipment is in good working order and being used properly he noticed mine parked by my toolbox and started asking me questions about it. After answering his questions I asked him about what type of regulations there were here in Texas and he told me just keep the pedals operational and keep the engine below 125cc and it doesn't have to be registered. He did mention that it does need lights if ridden after dark and that I need to obey any speed limits but that's not a problem where I ride.
Amen... and God Bless Texas.....!
Just hope it stays the way it is for us, not to many Motorized Hot Rodders here, I do ride mine fast but living in small town area Texas the cops like my bikes as much as I do and they don't really care what I have on it they just want one also....LOL!
It's a shame some states are a pain in the back side about the bikes, they'll let people run all over town in those huv-around electric 3 and 4 wheel chairs that are much more dangerous to the rider on the road than our bikes are in my opinion.
For some it's just that they feel the need to tax and big brother the heck out of everyone in the lame name of "public safety" I'm a full blown rebel when it comes to this kinda mess, way to much government and regulation in our lives to start with nowadays and then these states want to pick on people for building themselves and cool and inexpensive way to travel to and from work or just joy ride down to the store for a sody water or Coke as many of us call all of them in Texas...LOL!
