State and local laws do vary greatly from North Carolina where there are no restrictions on a vehicle traveling under 30 mph to the confusing and draconian bans here in New York where only approved factory built machines are allowed. Homebuilt cars and motorcycles must be approved and registered. I would like to see e-bikes under 20 mph considered bicycles and motorized bikes between 20-30 mph registered for licensed riders 16 yr. and older. This class would require lights and helmets. Minimum seat height for recumbents should be 20 inches. See recumbents.com for many great project articles.
