Not easy at all. Now the City needs to be able to determine if something is reconfigurable or not. Maybe my controller case is from a "legal" Model A but the innards are actually from an illegal Model B (shoved a Phaserunner inside :^). And, of course, they need to deal with the possibility of swapping out parts like the controller after inspection. Essentially any bike is reconfigurable. It's just a matter of how hard or easy it is to do so. So now you need stickers for all the components?!? And all this assumes that counterfeiting the stickers is hard - which it may not be and that regulators and cops know to beware of the ways systems can be reconfigured at the outset.billvon wrote: ↑Aug 24 2018 9:57amIf it is reconfigurable, it's not on the list of class 1 bikes.

So you configure your bike for the desired class, get it registered, slap on a sticker, and then reconfigure it. Suddenly enforcement isn't so easy.
Some of this may seem a tad extreme, but if this was my job or if I was an enthusiast, it might be easily worth the trouble. And those folks are the "problem" groups to begin with. Right?
