Hello, I have just recieved a 1984 Cosmo Colt from a Friend. It Runs, i took it for a long ride just the other day (down to Newark, almost got killed for it, people jumped me but gave it back when they found out it was registered, thats a diffrent story) Well I have a few minor, well at least i hope, problems.
Problem 1: The back brakes are crap! When i engage them by squeezing the lever, the little lever the brake cable is conected to on my rear wheel brake stays stuck in that posiotion, so i cant move it out. Is there a way to fix that problem without having to mess with the internal parts ? Also the brakes suck to, they hardly stop. Let me know if i can Repair my brakes to atleast skid, incase of an emergency.
Problem 2: Bad Acceleration, i dont know to much about mopeds, i just got it a few weeks ago, but when i accelerate i go full throttle and it hardly moves, in speed, i dont know what is the cause of that. maybe someone here can help me.
But the top speed is a nice 35 MPH on a level surface, im not complaining about that...
Please see what any of you experts can do to help me, thanks
