A mini chopper is not quite small and light enough to be considered a moped/light scooter, so I believe you have to have a license to drive it on roads. In North Carolina, in order to drive a 2-wheeled vehicle without a license, you have to be 16, wearing a DOT approved helmet, and the bike has to meet these requirements:

50cc's or less

no external gearshift device

30 mph maximum speed

209 lbs or less

wheels have to be 10in in diameter or more

Many states will vary in their laws, but look up moped/scooter laws for your state and if your bike qualifies, then have fun, and be safe.

You can;t get a tag for them, so you can't ride them on the street legally. The police will pull you over and give you a ticket. There is some good informatiom on Street Legal Mini Bikes at:

Are mini choppers legal Canada?

Mini Chopper motorcycles are are illegal to ride in the public in Canada. Depending on the territory, the rules are more or less strict but the general concensus is that they can be ridden on private property and race courses only. Riding in public parks and sidewalks is illegal but you'll only be fined if you receive a complaint. Basically, these bikes are illegal everywhere but people ride them anyway. Just don't annoy others with them and you should be fine. I ride mine around the neighborhood and to the local convenient store. If you're still interested, theses bikes are a lot of fun, you can find the cooler ones online.

Unfortunately, you cannot ride a 150cc chopper on the roads in Ontario without properly registering and licensing it. You may possibly register it if you declare it as a homebuilt chopper and you are also obligated to put signals and a brake light on the back of the bike to make it "street legal". i hope it helps,
