A friend and I have been wanting mopeds for a while now, but found out they were illegal out in CA (2 strokes at least) due to emmissions. I have seen one or two out in Clairmont (2 stroke), one in Fontana, and some people are selling prebuilt mopeds with 2 stroke engines on CL (Craigslist) now. I read one listing that said that the seller asked local officials about the moped he was on and they only required a helmet.
ANY Officials/those in the "know" in the 626 area know if this is legal to have/use (2 storke)? My friend has seen a 4 stroke (motor was mounted on back of bike) but it's VERY rare to see them about ... which is weird imo and what also has me "iffy" about making one.
**I am inquiring about the 2 stroke because it's less expensive and easier to mount v. the 4 stroke**
thank you for your input.
