I have a Spree also. I rebuilt the engine, and learned alot about it in the process.

Sounds to me like you may have a plugged exhaust (plugged with carbon). If thats not the problem there are a couple of trouble shooting articles you will find on the Moped Army discussion forum. If you follow the steps, you will likely find the solution to your problem.

Good Luck, Dave

If you have to physically bounce the bike to keep it from stalling, it sounds like the needle valve in the carburetor is sticking.

You should take the carb out and clean it thoroughly.
