Nice Ride! Cool and economical transportation. Kick-butt on the NOS! you flying. I (used to) have a 1977 PUCH two speed that I used to ride around the neighborhood a decade or two back. Grand-kid dragged it outta the Barn with intentions of getting it running again. Haven't seen it since. your "fun Fact" about the Cessna Wings seems to hold true with the COx models also. I guess once you have a good airfoil, no since in changing it. Thanks for the Video it was enjoyable>

The only problem with that is the cox stuff didn’t have a good airfoil lol!
From what I’ve heard and seen they’re terrible lol

Anyways thanks!

A nice one!!! Just because it is engine driven, do you have to register it with the authorities as a motor vehicle?

Lol
Short answer, no, but long answer is yes.
In Washington you do have to register it as a motor driven cycle. It doesn’t have a speed limit but has to be below 5HP, needs headlights, a horn, and a tail light. I believe it needs to wear a plate too. With this though, you can go on roads with it. A motorcycle license is required since it’s essentially a lower class of motorcycle. Imo I think that’s a really great way of handling these since some people want to go faster than 25mph and 50CCs like in Arizona. Arizona allows them to legally be on sidewalks however. One does not have to register it with Arizona.

Is that an electric motorcycle david???

Nice video.  This province we are not allowed any gas powered bikes without insurance and a plate which required an annual fee up until this week.  Even a Moped needs insurance which is about $500 a year, so really you may as well just get a real motorcycle.  Had a Tomas Moped with a 2 speed trans which went 60 KPH that I liked but sold it because I needed the room, and really did not want to insure it.  Just ran up and down the rural street once in a while till I moved more into town.  Have an old old O and R  Ohlson and Rice motor which bolts onto a bicycle.  Never attempted to mount it because of the licensing hurdles.  Electric bikes here have a regulated max of 500 watts before needing insurance and plates.  I had a Gio 350 watt scooter for a time, but it only went 24 KPH an I really did not feel safe in it with other drivers whizzing by, I think they were angry sometimes, as I would be too.  The Moped was OK at 60 KPH.  It really was not blocking traffic even on the rural roads with a 80 KPH or 50 mph speed limit. The electric Gio was just lead gel cell and worked ok for what it was.  Just needed a bit more speed.

I can't imagine it being very good for much. It rubs on the tire much like another electric version I picked up many years ago. I think that when they are wet they don't work at all because of slippage, and the tires wear quickly. It would be cool to fire up the motor though.
