i see those things on e bay all the time. i also see the 200cc street legal dirt bikes for @ $1,100 and think they would be fun to drive to and from work. i guess i was right to be suspicious. maybe MO could let its subscribers know if any of those chinese bikes are legal AND worth the $$$

bummer the deals were so good I was going to buy one. I guess globalization only works one way. They export our jobs but we can't buy inexpensive chinese goods. I love the government.

If they outlaw scooters, only outlaws will have scooters. Stick it to the man and ride baby, ride!

The issues concerning EPA-illegal scooters are well known among the scooter cognoscenti in this country. There are importers and scooter shops which make it their business to report on and "out" illegals, including some which have counterfeit EPA stickers. for anyone interested, check out the "Illegal and Bad Scooters" forum on the International Scooterist BBS.

Most of the illegal crap is coming from mainland China, thru sleazy importers who don't want to spend the money for correct EPA certification.

OK, so, like, didn't everybody know this already?



I can't believe that local cops really care about this. As long as I can produce a legitimate registration and proof of insurance, my sheriff's department doesn't seem to mind. I guess they behave differently if you cause trouble, eh?
