The first paint job I did was on a hobbit that had been completely just pooped on with spray paint.

Like everything was brown.

Spokes, plastics, everything except the tires (because they had been changed after I assume) and the lights.

I thought I could save time and do a good job just with masking and taping, but it didn't turn out that way. Between sanding all the little crevasses and masking sit like the wheels and cables and little picky things like that stuff, it ended up taking longer than if I had just pulled it apart and painted each part separate.

Tear it down. I know it looks intimidating the first time, but there really isn't that much to a moped.

On top of the other stuff people have said, I always think its a good idea to have a friend or two to help. That way you have more than one person making sure shit doesn't get lost/broken/put back together wrong.
