I rebuilt my old '83 XL600, and modded some things along the way. Now that it's done I'm looking to build a street-legal/motard CR500.
I talked to a lady (a special contact) at the local (Texas) DMV office and asked if an off road titled bike could be registered for the street. The answer seemed to be a "yes". I was given contact information to a DPS office in San Antonio. I called the #, talked to an actual DPS officer, told him my thoughts, and he agreed also that if it meets state highway requirements it can be put on the streets. The way I understand the regulations is: If the bike meets all requirements for the state inspection, it can be registered for the street.
My bike has "for road use" tires, 2 mirrors (1 is mandatory-even if it's a bicycle mirror), stop light/tail light (I even converted my blinkers to running lights/blinker lights), high beam/low beam and the ever-faithful horn. The only bike I have ever seen w/o a front brake is some crappy chopper. Leave it to a Harley freak to build the thing with only a rear brake.
BUT... I never asked the million$$$ question. Is a 2-stroke bike legal for the streets??? I don't see why it would matter. I've seen cc limits, but no engine specifics.
2-cycle weed eaters are still sold in stores, 2-cycle fishing boats are still polluting the lakes and look at the zillions of loud Harleys we have to deal with constantly. Why couldn't a "ping king" be put on the street? I'm still searching a positive answer before I convert a CR.
It's 99% positive that it can be done in TX.
Hope this helps in some way,

I'm now swapping in a CR500 engine.
Making a dirt bike legal can be done. It all depends on where you live and what the laws allow.

However, 4 out of 5 inspection stations I went to had never heard of this, and the one that did had never done one before. Even most of the workers at the RMV had never heard of it, and as a result there was no exact procedure to follow.

DS Kit from Procycle - $350
Second Brake Light Switch - $20
DOT Tires (Kenda K270) - $110
Pre Inspection - $30
Notary Services - $5
Titling Fees - $70
Actual Inspection - $15
It adds up quick, then you have to factor in your time. I had to make 6 trips to the DMV, which is about a one hour round trip.

I've researched this a bit for Michigan, and I've found the form that outlines the procedure for inspection...http://www.michigan....-54_38480_7.pdf. From what I understand, once you have the bike set up with the equipment outlined in MI for TR-54, you take it to any police department for them to inspect. The police department will inspect the bike to ensure that it has all of the items outlined on the form, and also will confirm the VIN number. You then take this form and your title to the Secretary of State and that should be it.
I've spoken to the people at the Secretary of State, and they have stated that this is all that is required. I haven't tried this yet, but hope to do so within the next few months.
