Here's a novel idea.
Read a book.
Quit relying on Google and learn something.
The history of motorcycles and those that brought them to us in every size, shape and color is fascinating and educational.

On a sad note.

Robert M. Pirsig (88) died last week 4/24/17.
Author the the New York Times Best Seller that should be in every motorcyclist collection.
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
Best Seller with Millions of copies sold, a million the first year 1974.

The only search necessary should happen in the comfort of your own personal motorcycle library at home.

You can skin it to anything you want, a boat, an apple, a Christmas Tree.
It's what powers it up and runs down the street, Pure BSA.
That's how it registered, titled and licensed.
The rest of it is cosmetics.

You obviously have a lot of experience working on these bikes and are good at telling people how to solve their problems.

As a judge of machinery...not so good. Cant tell a scooter from a car!

Anything registered and licensed as a Motorcycle is a motorcycle.
That applies to both Federal and State codes.
Anything 50cc or larger, Scooter or Moped, is registered and licensed as a Motorcycle.
Some states do not require motorcycle operator endorsements on driver license for 50cc or smaller Scooters/Mopeds.
Some states do.
Three wheel vehicles are registered and licensed, as are their operators, as Motorcycles.
What powers them does not matter.
You will find VW, Chevrolet 4-6 and 8 cylinder, Helicopter Jet engine, Turbo/Supercharged, billet block engines, in motorcycles of both two and three wheeled varieties.
Some have bodies some don't.
No consideration is taken as to body style in registration/Licensing.
They are classified as Motorcycle.

Don't like that?
Change the code in your state.
Prepare for serious push-back from the motorcycle industry.
They will out lawyer you on a massive scale.

Go back and look at the pictures in the link. The Wikipedia caption says BSA Cars.

They have steering wheels.

The government calls them motorcycles?

I think we all know the government can't get much of anything right these days.

I found the three wheel BSA scooter...er moped! It came out in the 70s, the frame not the wheels tilted and it was such a bust some blame it for the demise of BSA.

My cousin had a Bicycle with a steering wheel.

This falls well within the range of Who Cares.

No more troll food for you from me.

Done.
