A couple weeks away from buying my first moped (and any automobile for that matter). It's a 1980 Motobecane Le Moped. I'm a pretty stereotypical privaleged college freshman I guess, who's only ever changed the oil and tires on a car.
I figured a moped would be a good inexpensive first investment, and if it breaks down, a headfirst lesson in mechanics. Does anybody have any tips, or links to a guide on taking care of mopeds, or an older Motobecane in particular. Are there things I should know about, and clean, and change regularly? Thank you for any thoughts.
