or anyone that would have any input please reply to this. Ok, i have a Motobecane Mobylette 1977. It is a great bike, and i have had it for quite sometime. However it has gotten harder and harder to start in its old age. I have done all the simple things, including just replacing the carb with a new one. I have changed the plugs, and the belt seems fine. What makes a Motobecane harder and harder to start? Simon and i were talking about it this weekend, and about the only thing we could come up with was maybe the High Tension coil wears out after a thousands of miles. Or maybe the timing needs to be adjusted. Any thoughts.
