    Phil and James did 510 miles on the MAdAss 125 yesterday. They went from Las Vegas to Grand Junction, CO. WOW! Hope you are watching their trip on www.drmadass.com Please post on the blog to wish them well.

    OK, so you're not a DWI who got his license pulled...but the original suggestion also referred to registration as a 49.5cc; which in several states means no plates, no or lower taxes and fees, no motorcycle registration needed, legally allowed to park on sidewalks and/or bicycle racks, etc...

    Portlands pretty lib about parking motorcycles on the sidewalk anyway.:lol3

    theres a bunch a rat bike clubs that hold urban alley rallies and half the bikes are not even close to street legal.:lol3

    is a great place to be a biker. if they would just legalize lane sharing.:bluduh

    CITYXSLICKER,
    Go to http://planetminis.com/f21/sachs-madass-custom-134172.html
    where they are talking 150cc and 172cc engines in the Madass with speeds of 75MPH.

    Sequimish, for now
    I get pulled over alot, I know every law enforcement officer on duty in a tri county area (only two tickets in 25 years, but still I meet alot of the crew in blue)
    I am thinking with a registration that shows 49ccs it get access to all the areas that are prohibited to 'motorcycles' (DNR) land, run down city streets, use it for commuting, pick it up and put it in a RV, Truck, Boat scenario. It is the new uber hooligan machine, plus ease of maintenance...(I break stuff often)
    and by the time I mount MX wheels and tires on it, similar to the Scorpa 4Tricks....

    and now you see why I get in trouble a bit.

    we hope that the madass 50 will be back in the u.s. market next year. in the past 4 years we have done hundreds of 88cc big bore kits for them , and the guys that rode them with the original moped plates at there own discretion seemed to snuck under radar with the smallish looking engine. the cylinder was not marked from the supplier as an 88cc , so that probably helped.
    the engine swaps to the 150, and 160cc engines do not look like a moped engine, so you might have a hard time sneaking it under radar.

    moto-scoot has a 160cc big bore kit in the works for the stock 125 madass engine, but that will not affect the title and registration with the madass 125 already being a motorcycle.

    when is somebody going to stick a v-twin into madass???:wink::wink::wink:

    Yikes!

    I looked at buying a glastron once, that rear toe eye was held on with a few small nuts, no real backing plate. I remember thinking, I wouldn't want to pull a tube with it for fear of it pulling out. (most of these on ski boats are backed up into a large aluminum or stainless plate that's fiberglassed in place and use large fender washers.)

    I hope he made sure his was on there, would suck to tear out your fiberglass, and lose your scoot. On the plus side that mount looks marvelous.

    Well I got mine. Does anybody know how to reset the display to read in miles not kms? Bike seems very light and easy to handle. No tach though.

    moto-scoot bill,
    That s an impressive presentation of options for the MadAss 125.
    How about some 0-60 times from the different options?

    What, you don't want to learn the metric system? :deal

    60.8~ MPH equals 100 KPH, if your pushing 90 KPH for long periods you're probably not helping the engine break-in. In either case you can be sure the engine is spinning over 7 grand.

    I used to have a formula that calculated the engine RPM from road speed but you gotta know your total drive ratios, and the circumference of the wheel.
