Engine bog and Front Brakes

I just bought a 1977 (?) Puch Newport and I'm having a few problems.

1. The engine bogs and stalls at full throttle under load, like it's running rich. The only adjustment i can find on the carburetor is the Idle mixture screw. Is there and adjustment I can make inside the carburetor or is it just too cold to run it? (It's about 20 degrees outside)

2. The front brakes have a tendency to drag after engaging them and letting off. Then when you spin the wheel backwards and hit the brakes, it spins freely until the next time you use the brakes. When the front wheel is in the air and not spinning and you quickly hit the brakes and let go, the wheel spins backwards a little bit. Is there something that needs to be greased or adjusted?

Otherwise, the Puch is great. I got it home and it started on the first turn of the pedals. If anyone can help that would be great!
