Not True, at least in the USA, a motorized bicycle is regulated as a bicycle and only as a bicycle as long as the electric motor or gas engine are under a set size and it has a regulated top speed, of course the motor or engine size is small enough that the Buick would move at a walking pace.
The advantage of a fly wheel of course, is that you could store up your energy while at a stop and while braking.
