Default Re: Ontario Bike Engine Owners

As soon as you put a gas engine on anything in Ontario, it's a 'motorized vehicle'. There are no grey areas.
On the other hand, if one were to have a certified moped already in your name, there are no laws stopping you from 'customizing' your bike. A cop once told me that this was how bikers in the sixties got away with chopper forks that were five feet long. It's sort of like a VW Bug with a Fiberglass body kit. It may look like an Italian sports car but the ownership will say VW.
By the time you got lights, signals , horn and all that needs to be done, it may not be worth the bother.
