I don't think size of the vehicle has anything to do with being street legal.
I see them on the road all the time. Everyone I've seen was over 5'3, over 16, and over wight a couple of times.
Personally, I think they are stupid as all hell.

Size has everything to do with it. Another thing is displacement . not all of them mantain a high enough speed to go head to head with cars and trucks.

Yes you see em on the street but that doesnt mean they arent illegal. People do illegal things all the time ..... i ride my bike on the sidewalk woohoo i am doing something illegal ! If i cop sees you riding down a public road on a pocket bike he will shurely pull you over. Its one thing to joy ride thru your neighborhood a few times or ride up and down your street but riding down a busy street isnt something i recomend. Cars just wont be able to see you.... your only sitting a good 3 4ft off the ground...

... and then you go on your way after you show him the moped registration sticker you purchased for $7 at the DMV.

From Missouri's law

Q: What are the licensing laws for motor scooters (under 50cc)?

A: Licensing for a scooter or moped depends on whether the vehicle meets the definition of a motorized bicycle. The Missouri statute definition of a motorized bicycle is as follows:

"Any two-wheeled or three-wheeled device having an automatic transmission and a motor with a cylinder capacity of not more than fifty (50) cubic centimeters, which produces less than three (3) gross brake horsepower, and is capable of propelling the device at a maximum speed of not more than thirty (30) miles per hour on level ground."

A motorized bicycle does not have to be registered with the Missouri Department of Revenue. However, you must have a valid driver license (though no motorcycle endorsement is required).

Missouri statute does not require a helmet to be worn when operating a motorized bicycle. Please contact your local law enforcement agencies for any county/municipal codes that deal with helmets and motorized bicycles.

Keep in mind that no motorized bicycle may be operated on any public thoroughfare located within this state that has been designated as part of the federal interstate highway system.

I'm going to the mall now. They sell them at like a little independently run booth. I'm gonna offer the guy 250 for one. They have the ones that go 50, and are a little bigger. They usually want 400 but I'm positive that I can haggle them down. If not I'm gonna buy an ipod.

It doesnt matter if they have turn signals , lights and crap they still arent street legal. Bicycles dont need lights and turn signals mainly because its not motorized and doesnt fall under there juristiction .

Any pocket bike that cost less than $500 is junk. Its a wanna be pos pocket bike from asia kinda liek the crap dirtbikes you can buy on ebay. (there imported from asia and you can get a 250cc bike for like $1300 )

Its basicaly not possible for a pocketbike to be street legal. Go-Karts arent street legal .... niether are gopeds.
You shouldnt have a problem just riding around you nieghborhood but a pocket bike as a transportation method and going from place to place on one isnt safe or legal.

One way you can realy solve your dilemma is to call your dmv and ask. Also email some pocket bike companys *blata , piloni,skunk*

At least in connecticut, you don't need a special license to own one, you just need a driver's license, and you can't ride em on the sidewalk.

not sure about in the street though...
