Short story, I'm in california and I want my bike registered as a motorcycle so I can't be messed with. Like the rest of the people here I'm obviously not doing only 30mph, my bike is far from stock, lacks pedals, and stands out like a sore thumb. I just don't want my bike impounded by a cop just doing his job.
Long story, my bike was never a moped to begin with, it's a qt50. The day after I bought it I went to the dmv with every intention of registering as a motorcycle(scooter) only to take the motorcycle test and not the moped test, have my bike inspected like they would a motorcycle only to have the lady type away on her computer for what seemed like forever and tell me that she can't register it as a motorcycle because it was originally registered as a moped. Maybe that my bike was mistakenly originally registered as a moped may or may not help my situation idk. What do I do? Who do I talk to? Who do I have to pay off?
