The build isn't quite finished yet, so I don't have a tach and speedo yet, but I'll add them once I finish and have a bit of money again. Right now the bike is rideable, but I don't have the money to put the finishing touches on (connect the pedals, add headlights, tach and speedo). I have very high end 180 mm disc brakes on both wheels. In Oregon, the law is 34cc and 20 mph without a class M license, 49cc and 30 mph with class M, so my bike is illegal no matter what. However, my experience has been that if I don't act like a jerk while riding and obey the rules of the road, the cops around here could care less. Here's the bike btw:

Oh, cops will stop him.

...

To say "that's a freaking awesome motorcycle you got there".

You might want to look into registering it as a homebuilt motorcycle. At this point, that's all it is.

yea, I'm looking into that, problem I'm running into is insurance. There's not many companies that will insure a homemade vehicle, and none that will do it for a price I can afford.

Look for insurance companies that insure "custom motorcycles". In most cases home built and custom are identical in Oregon, according to their laws that I've read.

In most cases you are right, however "custom" requires that you have a real motorcycle frame that meets a bunch of safety standards, which my bike frame does not.

Don't pull the trigger. Squeeze it. You will find better control and accuracy. But this is not a gun forum. It's a motorized bike forum. Related topics only please, in each thread.
Update: this was in response to what seems like a system error. In any case, it was fixed and this comment should be deleted to avoid any further confusion.

What is happening? This is not the only time an unrelated question came up, must be some kind of bug linking this site to others with the same "forum program"
