Batavus HS-50 won't start

I've got a 1975(74?) HS-50 with strong spark, air and fuel. It won't start. "quick start" makes it "burp" when trying to start but it won't catch. Wan running great when put into storage 5 years ago. No other changes. Any ideas?

Read Fred's "How to fix your moped" post.

If your moped is firing with QuickStart, then you're getting a good spark.

Two things you should try:

1) Replace your spark plug.

2) Clean your carburetor.

I would guess that there is a 98% chance that one of those two things will fix your moped.
