EPA OUTLAWS CHOPPERS MOTORCYCLES
Make America Roar Again
My mission is to remove the EPA law of
2007 that has put the
SVMs ( Small Vehicle manufacturers) out of business.
EPA Law: 40 CFR 85.1707 / 40 CFR 86.407-78(c)
I want to Bring back Jobs and Custom Bikes.
EPA GOT IT ALL WRONG !
The 2006 EPA Law States:
All 2007 up Motorcycles Must be Emissions Compliant:
Exceptions to the Rules – Custom Motorcycles and Motorcycle Kits A + B
40 CFR 85.1707 / 40 CFR 86.407-78(c)
A: Kit Bike Exemption: This exemption lets you personally build "ONE AND ONLY ONE KIT MOTORCYCLE IN YOUR LIFETIME" and drive it all the time without EPA regulations, BUT, you must buy all the parts and build it yourself, or have someone build it for you, but they can not buy any parts for you. I see the method here, sneaky way to shut down a shop from building a bike and then selling it, screwed by the EPA, but wait it gets better ...
B: Small Manufacturer Exemption: This states that a small manufacturer can build up to 24 bikes per year. BUT, you must attach this label:
THIS MOTORCYCLE IS EXEMPT FROM EPA
EMISSION REQUIREMENTS. ITS USE
ON PUBLIC ROADS IS LIMITED
PURSUANT TO 40 CFR 86.407–78(c).
Here lies the problem, who is going to buy a custom built chopper they can not drive? EPA is setting us up to fail or break the law.
The law needs to be changed to read, any American made motorcycle manufacture that builds less than 52 bikes per year shall be exempt from EPA regulation for no more that 52 motorcycles sold.
Just to note again, this does not exclude any other Department of Transportation regulations, Only EPA Emissions on 52 motorcycles.
