I know the statues require plates/tabs, > 50 engine cc, at least 1 mirror (left hand side) and turn signals if it's after 19xx (what's the actual year?) What else is needed to determine if a bike meets the requirements to be street legal in MN? Thanks.

They used to run them with plates when I was a kid. Not quite a scooter, but cool with the high/low semi-auto 8-speed transmission (I've been thinking about getting one myself). I bet it would go about 45-50 mph.

Just make sure that you have brake lights and a mirror. You'll need a motorcycle license to ride it, unless you can talk someone into moped plates.

Oh yeah, I bet the turn signal year was 1975. Though all of the old vespa owners removed theirs because of bad electrics.

Derrick knows. He's all about being legal.

How long have you ridden with Italian plates?

I don't ride my bikes. I just talk about them. They don't run.

I don't ride my bikes either. I just talk about them. They are too pretty to ride.
