Most places the cops don't like kids riding those on the streets. I'm sure they are not legal. Regardless, if the cops don't care then it doesn't matter. Some areas are like that.

110cc does not fall in the category of golf carts or other small run around vehicles that do not need to be tagged. best bet is to get it street legal but then he'd need a license to ride it to even make that apply

bikes > 49cc you have to have a license to operate. and you cannot ride them on the street without tags/inspection

i would take him to the dirt, or private parking lots of business that are closed or parking lots of businesses that have just been built but are not habitated. (plenty of those around where i live)

I'd bet that 110cc can be legalized IF you have the title.

I had a pocket bike back when I was in college. It was hella fun but had problems a few weeks after I bought it so I returned it. This was back in Colorado and I saw plenty of guys getting tickets on them because they are not street legal or even legal on the sidewalk. Don't know what the law is here but I would imagine more or less the same.

yes they can be made street legal. I have a crf 50 that is street legal... it was a pain in the with the aftermarket frame not having a VIN... but there is a process to do it
