Been following since they were on Kickstarter, one of these days I will talk my neighbor out of the perfectly good running 125 pit bike she has sitting in her shed that her kids no longer need and do it.

Is that yours? Looks to be the newest frame. What engine are you running?

Yeah the Pitster Pro 155 with the foot peg kit is the way to go for the bigger engines. Although the 110cc Pitster Pro e-start semi-auto is pretty dang good.

Wow, Mr Negative. With pedals NOTHING as it is a Bike. Actually real easy to pedal on flat ground your not going to pedal up very steep inclines though.

More to come, looks like I'll be heading to Moab, UT here maybe as early as next week.

Yup, just waiting on an adapter bracket for the rear brake and a countershaft sprocket, probably some fiddling with the carb and then she'll be good to go. It's a semi-auto lifan 141, Fox 40 in the front, DHX RC4 in the back.

Still need to get a VIN, OHV and moped registration, but apparently you can't start that process until it's finished. Pumped to try it out though; we're over in Wash Park so I mainly just want to cruise around the city on it. I switched to holy rollers for that since this pic was taken, but it'll probably also be good for intro to dirt for friends that haven't ridden before as it's semi-auto and light.

For the VIN I assume you want that for the moped registration of $5 for 3 years. What we been doing is just using the engine serial number. Motopeds does not and will not in any time soon have a VIN. It's something they are working on. They are also working on DOT tires.

For people reading this 49cc is street legal and classified as a motorized bicycle. For the 110cc like I show it's not, pretty much slap a OHV sticker and hit the trails hence most people going bigger engines will do the foot peg kit.

Yeah, I was thinking about that, but then the motor gets tied to the registration, which I would prefer to not do that since you have to sign an affidavit that it's under 50cc to register it as a moped and I don't really want to perjure myself. If the motor isn't tied to it, I could always have a 49cc motor in it when I register it and then switch it later.

I imagine getting a CO assigned VIN is going to be a pain, but once it's done, it's done.

49cc is street legal, and requires a Moped registration which is $5 for 3 years. In CO it can be semi-auto that is okay (although I think all the 49cc's are fully auto) so you are good there. The pedals are needed because to be a Moped you have to be able to power it under human power.

Which is a gray area because technically even the 110cc is legal if you are pedaling and not under the power of the motor. Pretty silly really.

For example I was just looking up UT. They require it to be fully auto, 49cc, no more then 3HP and not to exceed 30mph. You don't need a sticker for Utah if you meet those requirements.

Now what people are doing is taking the 49cc, and putting the big bore kit on so the stamp on the fin still says 49cc but now its 88cc and also a fully automatic. This has been popular with the scooter guys for a long time.

I would like to point out with my direction and through RMAR I got AMPD hooked up with the AMA and they will be donating a bike to be given away at a banquette in Ohio. Pretty cool huh!

These guys want to support our trails which is a great start to a new business venture.
