Dang that sucks! I went to a lot of yard sales last spring and never found one but I’ll have to keep looking this coming spring. Sure would be nice to get one for free/50 bucks, it’s not the work that bothers me but if it costs $300 for an ignition (like on my diblasi) there’s no way. Was a fun moped while it lasted but parts were CRAZY expensive
