    How to register Luna Sur-Ron as OHV (offroad registration)

    It seems there is some misconception about how to do a Sur-Ron registration.

    Many bike shops are unwilling to take on the obvious liability that comes with assisting in making something like this street legal, which includes providing the certificate of origin and/or providing other forms of assistance outside of operational support for normal usage of the bike itself.

    However, origin cert is not required for Sur-Ron OHV registration, all you need is the receipt from Lunacycle. A PDF copy of any order invoice is provided by Lunacycle upon request, which can be printed and used instead of origin cert.

    As with anything you read on the internet it is a good idea to verify with a professional such as a local specialist concerning things like titling and registrations, but generally this is what you need.

    Hope you guys find this info useful :)

    Thanks for bringing up this topic. I too was interested in another aspect of this. In Calfornia we have available a one time registration 230 for a motorized bicycle(moped). To meet this criteria, the moped must have a top speed of under 30 mph, engine of under 4 gross horsepower, and optional pedals. I say optional because this feature is waived if the motor is electric.

    My thoughts are this; if I were to either keep the bike in economy mode or disconnect the higher power, sport mode settings switch, put on the pedal kit (just for show), put on lights and turn signals...could I get away with using this as a moped here in a beach community.

    The registration form requires an origin certificate, which I see that above could be the Lunacycle invoice. But that example is for off-road registration. Will Lunacycle provide a certificate of origin? It also requires a VIN number. Does the bike have this? Or a distinctive serial number? I would plan to do the same for a class 3 electric bike, which i know does not have a VIN. Any thoughts out there?

      Origin cert not available nor needed, use the invoice.
      Yes some folks get moped license in cali. We had a video on this but apparently success is mixed using the steps outlined so we took it down.
      Yes it has a serial. No it has no VIN.

    I live in CA and I went the path of no paperwork. My ebike is not legal because it has too high of a top speed and too many Watts.

    Having said that, I have been riding it at least six days a week all over my crowded city. I always pedal to make it look good. I am in the bike lane 90+% of the time going about 30mph. I take a lane or ride on the sidewalk only when necessary. I have had zero problems with LE--not even a second look.

    It might help that I wear a safety vest, helmet with helmetcam. I also always have my headlights and flashing rear tail lights going.
