Souping up a Motobecane

Last year I bought a '78 Motobecane 50V as a basket case. I had two motors in pieces, one an older Dimoby lower end, and the original Variator that came with the moped.

I mixed and matched and built one motor. Not a bad investment for $30.

It runs fine, but I'm wondering if anyone has any tried and true hot rod tips for this moped. I've really enjoyed tinkering with it and thinking about cutting the piston and doing a port job.

Anyone have any do's and dont's on this machine?

Thanks
