I just bought a sweet looking moped ($170)...that doesn't run. It doesn't have spark. I have had a mechanic friend look at it and he says that everything, including the engine, is in really great shape for its age. Minimal rust, not dents, scratches, and orignial tires have pressure. I am a newbie to mopeds but am mechanically inclined to tackle problems. Here is a pic to give you an idea (http://www.rhb.com/mymoped.html) of what it looks like. So, what should I try first to get this thing running? Clean the carburator and points? Reading through other Peugeot problems on this site, I anticapte that this could be a lengthy and frustrating process to get it to start. Where could I find a manual that would have engine diagrams for either this exact model or something similar? Someone suggested Sportsbay.com but I couldn't find Peugeot specific manuals. I realise that to get good detailed answers to my questions I must in turn supply good detailed information about the problem. So if you could point in me in the right direction initially I'm sure I'll return back with more detailed questions. Thanks.
