Re: agcat111 just thinking..planning...
Here in California it seems everything is tightly regulated, but so far I have never been hassled on any of my motorized bikes. My newest build is a cruiser, the plan is to run lights and to register as a motorcycle as the motor is well above the horse power rating to be considered as a motorize bicycle.
My bike is just on the road, lights are not yet hooked up, but I will continue to update my build thread over on the 'board tracker and vintage' side of the house and that will include what I do for lighting. My end goal is a fully legal machine that I can take anywhere at any time which seems to be in line with your goal as well.
And I see you are in Utah, Pat and I will be out there at Bonneville for Speedweek this coming August, if you come out to watch pls be sure to come by and introduce yourself.
