    hey guys this is my first post and so far i really like the site!
    i just bought one of those 49cc mini croch rockets, it has all working lights, a speedomiter (no odomiter). what else do i need besides mirrors and odomiter to make it street legal? i just want to ride it on back roads by my house without being hassled. i read on another thread you have to have proof of purchase and what not, i dont. i got it off a guy on craigslist, so how would i go about getting a title for it? do i have to take the test for a motorcycle? any advice would be greatly greatly appreciated! thanks.

    I thought that the street legal bikes have to have a 17 digit vin number , but I'm not sure ?

    Your going to have a hard time getting it street legal without a title.
    International Title Service only works for vehicles/cycles older than 1974. So your on your own with this one.
    Good Luck

    Ohio looks to have pretty tough laws on these little bikes, it would be considered a moped in Indiana.
    Call the Ohio BMV for what you need to do.

    Moped Information

    Good Luck
