    Why not check the local DMV if you're seriously wondering this.

    And no, that makes no sense. Honda still sells 49cc street legal scooters.

    There is no restriction. You can ride a 25cc bike or a 1000cc bike. Where do people come up with this stuff?

    Usually a 150cc restriction in interstates and minimum speed limit (at least in this part of Florida)

    There are indeed brake horsepower restrictions for interstate vehicles

    Seems like most states draw the line around 7-8 ponies...... 5 comes to mind for some and there is that pedal thing with 30mph restrictions.

    My guess is that if it has a title, legal tags and legal road going equipment ..... sans pedals....

    it meets the minimum and is good to go

    Certain states also restrict bikes from parkways and other 55mph roads if the bike is not capable of 55 mph.

    There is a big difference between road legal and road safe. While the state won't stop you from registering it, common sense should stop you from thinking it is a wise idea to use the thing for anything other than local round town

    The fastest I ever managed out of a stock cb100 was just a few ticks over 60mph indicated.

    Likely wasn't even a real 55mph and even if so..... I wouldn't want to be on one amongst 70-90mph superslab traffic.

    use common sense where and when such a bike is applicable.
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)
