Gutner carburetor, right? You probably need a new float, and the carb probably needs a good cleaning also. Even after replacing the float there's no guarantee that it won't leak a little when you park it, your best bet is to have a good shutoff valve, turn it off and let your bike die of fuel starvation when your done riding it. This will dry the carb out and goodbye gas leak. When you get the float out, shake it, it shouldn't have gas inside it, I don't think this is your problem though, just a sticky, dirty float. As for the speed-o-meter, I have no experience with Motobecanes but it shouldn't be to hard to find someone with speedometer info at this site.
