    Newbie to the bike engine clan here...

    I'm a college student trying to save money, who is also quite tired of Los Angeles public transportation. Motorcycling is no new thing to me, however the bicycle engine kit concept is. Now, for my question: I'm well aware these bike engine companies cant ship to CA addresses, but what may happen if I obtain a 66/80cc kit and use it anyways?

    Thanks

    legal to own, legal to ride. need at least an M2 (scooter license. M1 works, too.)

    by law, you need to register it, dot helmet, headlight, taillight, left mirror and a horn.

    license plate costs 19 bucks, one time fee.

    no insurance needed.

    use the custom search bar above and type in "the real deal on california law."

    it's a rambling thread with all kinds of misinformation, but the first few posts tell you everything you need to know.

    contact norm at venice bikes ( forum sponsor and all around nice guy) for engines, parts and info.

    adams motorsports park in riverside. 2pm-10pm

    motorized bike racing on the gokart track.

    40 bucks to race, 5 bucks for a pit pass, and free to spectate.

    pitpass is the way to go unless you like sitting on the bleachers.

    search "bairdco racing at adams."

    you can google the directions.
