If itís legal, for how long can I keep the bike before re selling it?
What plates should I use?
Would I have to contact the original seller at the time of re selling?

Thanks for any advice.

For road bikes - Legally here in Florida you have 30 days to register a vehicle from the date of purchase (for used vehicles). After that they can slap you with a fine. All you need to do is carry the bill of sale or the title (bill of sale is probably a better option). The Bill of sale needs to have the date you purchased it clearly and not be past 30 days.

I am not sure how much the ticket is but ive heard they can be hefty.
