    Default making my go kart street legal?

    I have one of these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ME:B:BODO:US:1

    Is it possible to get this street legal? I mean I can keep up with traffic no problem, all I'd have to do is put a windshield on it and It's pretty much a motorcycle with 4 wheels.

    it looks like it has headlights, and blinkers already. does it have brake lights and back up lights? it might be street legal already.

    I think that it mostly street legal...but you will probably need to add a windshield of some sort...

    Depends on the state also...


    Peace,

    You're gonna need a windshield, wipers, DOT approved rims and tires, front and rear brakes, some type of emmisions reduction system, rearview mirrors, rear license plate mount and light for the plate, 3rd brake light, high beams, a horn, noise complient muffler, insurance and registration. Anyone car to add anything I may have missed?

    I know that in Texas, you don't have to have a windshield, but you do have to have working windshield wipers. Funny huh?

    Back to the matter at hand, I don't think that you would be able to make it street legal. I don't think that any insurance co. would insure it, but you neve know until you ask.

    or just mod it into a t-rex cause those are legal and the closest thing to a go-kart/motorcyle

    It depends on your state. Most states will let you make golf carts street legal. Just need rear view mirror, turn signals, horn, and a Brake light.

    Man I see people driving their quads down the street all the time in Phoenix. Matter of fact some of them have license plates.

    Still might not mean their street legal. Here in PA quad's have to be registered and require plates, but they are still NOT street legal.

    Thankfully I live in the sticks where they don't really care to much though.

    I know my dad took our quad to work a few years back, was street legal, I think he just put a squeeze bike horn somewhere and some crappy mirror of the handle bars =P.

    Maybe something like a moped registration. Only allowed on certain roads.
