Hello all...long story short. I've always wanted a moped so I finally got one (1978 Garelli Gulp-Matic Deluxe) and don't know a single thing about "mechanics" cars, motorcycles, mopeds...nothing. So if you could link me to the best threads or give any information that would be great...I may not know anything but I'm a quick learner and I will obsess.

Some topics to get the ball rolling:

How to get it running consistently (jet is clear, carb seems clean...had it running for about 15 seconds now it won't run)

What cable to use to replace throttle cable...long? medium? specific length (the one on it wasn't flipping choke lever when fully twisted I tried adjusting and fucked it up)

What parts fit it in general (other garelli model parts? anything for an e50? I'm looking on treatland, moped division, lucky2stroke)

I want to clean the whole thing...is it wise to completely dismantle, clean and reassemble or will that create more issues when trying to run)

and tons more questions but this is my first round of inquiry...I'll keep researching but thought maybe i could get some good leads and not waste more time
