So, I have read through the wiki page and the TX DPS website regarding registration of a moped. I am perplexed, mostly due to the origin story of the bike that I own.
I have a valid title and registration from MI(chigan) for a 1959 Montgomery Ward's Riverside AV88. MI has few requirements (motorcycle ed, helmets, plates, all NOT required). I recently moved to TX and am looking to register/ride. When I look at the TX DPS website, it says that my moped has to be on an approved list to actually be a moped? My moped is not on the list. Info posted on the DPS website also states that if it doesn't meet criteria to be considered a moped, then it must be registered as a motorcycle. Seems ridiculous since it fits all requirements BUT being listed. Also, Montgomery Ward's is out of business and I don't believe that there is a Riverside dealer website where I could request the 'required' affidavit to confirm that the bike is in fact a moped.
Website also says that I need a TX motorcycle license (and requisite safety course) to ride a moped?
I want to be on the north side of legal but also don't want to do a bunch of extra leg work or spend money unnecessarily just because the information is not easily interpreted. Then again, did I read everything EXACTLY correct and TX just hates mopeds? (edited)
