Ive got a question for all you moped enthusiasts.
I have been looking at a 1980 Peugeot 102 SP on Craigslist for a while, and when I spoke with the man selling it he told me that the engine stops running every time you stop moving/idle. He told me that he took it into a motorcycle shop and asked about it and they told him that it was made that way.
Is that true?
It seems odd that the engine cuts out every time you stop and you have to pedal up to 3mph again to start it. I figured that once it started, it kept running. I don't want to get ripped off by this guy and have to spend another $300 to replace the engine.
I did a little digging and, if the engine is indeed supposed to stay running while stationary, it might just need a new carburetor.
If anybody knows weather or not the engine stopping is part of the design, I'd appreciate some insight.
