Anything CAN be done,but a 5hp Briggs is a lot bigger and heavier than any moped engine.It would involve a LOT of fabrication,and a great deal of thought.It would have to fit in the moped frame solidly,it would have to have some kind of clutch,and it would have to have a sprocket that lined up with the rear wheel,and fit the same size chain as the rear sprocket.You would also have to work out the proper gear ratio.As if that wasn't enough,did you plan on keeping the pedals?Even if they didn't do anything,no pedals is a dead giveaway that it is not a moped.However,if sombody can build a motorcycle with a Chevy V8(Boss Hoss),I'm sure it's possible to put a 5hp B&S on a moped.It won't be easy though.
