RE: Inspection Woes
Did you check the state statutes before you built it??
Is it in compliance?
For example, in NY a motorcyle seat has to be at least xx inches above the road, and the handlebars cannot be more than xx inches over the seat. Horn, lights, etc. Little things like that could be showstoppers.
I've seen some OCC bikes on the show that probably should not have received a NYS VIN approval. So get it VIN'd somewhere else I s'pose.
