@ Chet. you don't need to worry about the step-through regulations with the streetmate. because the streetmate is a step through frame. the tank is plastic and its tank IS the frame. so it is by all technicallity a "step through chassis"
@ Rob. we have been fighting this the whole way. I really wish EVERYONE would have chimed in and wrote letters but I think some people don't realize how much this could ruin mopeds. also a lot of the processes were kind of processed hush hush. nobody knew what was going on for like 2 months then all the sudden it was done. and all the people involved who told us they were trying to separate Mopeds from Scooters had nothing to say. and the more I think about it the more scared I am. they are giving all the power to the MVA which is not good. I'm about 99% positive that what is going to happen here is you are going to Roll your 40 year old moped up to the MVA and there first thing they are going to ask you for is the "original receipt of origin" from 1970. unfortunately thats just procedure for them. cause they aren't going to just give you a title. if that were the case it would be too easy for me to steal all my friends mopeds during their "grace period" and go title them all under my name. and become supreme Maryland Duke of Mopeds. Because they will all legally belong to me. I don't think the MVA is going to let that happen. I know how they are known for being so understanding and lenient. so.... also Rob. I think in addition to a Last Chance For Freedom Ride. it should be a sleepover followed by a next day scenic ride to the riots we will be causing at the MVA when they tell us that we can no longer legally own our property without the correct paperwork. I do think we NEED to show up in numbers. maybe call them ahead of time. or else we won't be taken seriously.
