Can a 49cc Honda CRF50 be rode in the streets of a neighborhood?

I am not that familiar with Texas state law, with that being said - i know there are a bunch of people on MH that are. Can you legally ride a 49cc mini bike on neighborhood streets? i was always told as long as it was a 49cc or less you could. Can someone please point out a law (Harris County is where i live) saying yes or no? If this is a repost of a previous question, i apologize.

I believe you have to have the bike street legal to legally ride the neighborhoods.

If it is tagged and inspected, can someone without a license still drive it in the neighborhood?

Neighborhood streets are no different than any other road, just more houses.
, in my neighborhood some of the streets are marked with both the street name AND the county road number.

No, you cannot ride it on public streets without a motorcycle license. Until Sept. 1, 2009 you could get a moped license without taking the BRC, but that's no longer valid.

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/msb/mopedinfo.htm

Definition of a moped Ė A motor driven cycle whose speed attainable in one mile is not more than 30 miles per hour and that is equipped with a motor that produces not more than two-brake horsepower. If an internal combustion engine is used, the piston displacement may not exceed 50 cubic centimeters and the power drive system may not require the operator to shift gears.



Driverís license for a moped Ė A moped operatorís license is required for operators of mopeds. A person must be at least fifteen (15) years old to be issued a license to operate a moped. The department shall examine applicants for that type of license by administering to them a written examination concerning traffic laws applicable to the operation of mopeds. Effective September 1, 2009 an applicant for an original class M license must furnish proof of successful completion of a basic operator training course prior to the written exam. All applicable provisions of this Act governing restricted operatorís licenses for the operation of motorcycles only also apply to moped operatorís licenses, including provisions relating to the application, issuance, duration, suspension, and cancellation of those licenses.

In Texas, if it Has a legitimate vin # & title it can be legalized... Except 4 wheelers.

Wait,
Do 4wheelers have vin #s?

Experience: I too own a street legal 50... & dirt bike.
