Motobecane Sebring won't stay running

My Motobecane Sebring will start, but after about 1 minute of riding the engine dies. After that it won't start. I've replaced the fuel lines and cleaned the carburetor.

Thanks

Check for spark after it dies. If no spark, clean the points. If that doesn’t work, change the condensor.

I’m no expert, but could it be that your idle needs adjusting, there’s a leak, or there’s low compression?

Probably bad condensor. Also make sure fuel cap is venting.
