## Brake horsepower of moped???

"To register my Peugeot I need to know the brake horsepower. The displacement is 49 cc, but how do I convert this to horsepower??? The maximum my state will allow is 1.5, but they want a figure. Can anyone tell me how much horsepower this is???<p>Thanks"

"<br>Whatever you do, make sure that you tell them a number less than 1.5 HP. It's that simple. I would personally suggest 1 or 1.25 HP.<p>"

The rules are - 50cc max, 35 mph max, 2 hp max. Just like a bicycle that operates on public roads - no registration is required, and no driver's license either. Indiana - ""MOPED FREE OR DIE"", is our moped motto.<p>"
