Welcome to the best Motored Bike site on the planet
You don't say what kind of motorized bicycle you have?
Yes, motorized bicycles are legal in CA with certain restrictions
The info is here on the forum
Legal top speed on a gas powered motorized bicycle in CA is 30 mph
however if you drive one off the side of a cliff it will go about 130 mph
This site is a guide, you just need to do a lot of reading
Motorized gas powered bikes are legal in California
M2 drivers license,
moped license plate on the bike,
ride in bike lane OK,
must wear DOT helmet,
less than 30mph on level ground,
Maximum of a 2-speed automatic transmission that is incapable of being manually shifted,
capable of Human Propulsion ie Pedals,
less than 2 brake horsepower,

The CA law says nothing about the size of the motor.
