You're kidding, right?
I've been pulled over 4 times, visited the DMV twice, and double-checked the state DMV code several times. If it has three wheels or less, does not have a displacement rating, and cannot reach speeds above 35mph I cannot get a license plate for it in Virginia. And therefore I do not need a license to operate it either.
But some states are much more stringent about electric vehicles, so you have to check your local DMV code for specifics.
I do obviously still have to obey normal traffic laws, and I cannot use roads with speed limits above 40mph.
That is really kick-ass, it is pure awesomeness, does it weigh more or less than the original bike?
Weighs about 25 pounds more, but I do need to weigh it more accurately now that it's working. I could shave off 40lb if I were spendy enough to use Lithium Polymer batteries instead of Sealed-Lead Acid.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
