I have a 70s Honda Z50 bike with 50cc that originally had a 3 speed foot shift auto clutch
transmission .   Because of the manual shift operation the state of GA defines my bike
as full fledged motorcycle.   I plan to stick it in 2nd gear and remove the shifter lever
from the transmission thereby making it a single speed bike that cannot be shifted.

I have been reading the GA LAW and  I cannot find a flaw in my logic here.

I will be basically riding a single speed bike that cannot be shifted  and that is
defined as a moped that does not require a license tag or motorcycle license
permit for the driver.    In addition I cannot come close to exceeding the 30mph
maximum on level ground for mopeds while I am stuck in 2nd gear.

I can keep the shifter and a wrench in my pocket for when I need to gain back
full function I can just screw the shifter lever back on..

Any other thoughts or comments ?
