Allso tnen ,if I can ride it under the US Disability Act how would go about this to be able to show the law that I can in fact leagaly ride my bike?

Was the vehicle registered as street legal before you made the modifications?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Yes, the vehicle was, and is registered as street legal. Sorry it took so long to answer you as I had to be away from my computer for some time.

My opinion is that the modifications basically make this a homemade vehicle and you would need to have it inspected by the Washington State Patrol to be sure that it is still street legal.

The State Patrol performs physical inspections on vehicles that have been rebuilt after being destroyed or declared a total loss by an insurance company. They also will perform physical inspections as required on vehicles reported stolen, homemade vehicles, or other vehicles without a proper VIN, when there is a VIN discrepancy, when there is a record dispute, when ownership is in doubt, or other special cases.

You make no mention as to weather or not I can ride this motorcycle under the US Dissability Act and how I would go about it.

The ADA does not address any issues relating to your own privately owned vehicle.
