Beginner needing assistance

I have a 1978 Motron moped. My uncle and I were working on it when we had everything done but the throttle cable. We attached the cable and about to put the throttle cable in the handle bar and screw it in. The screw to keep the throttle cable thread attached to the bar handle bar was stripped. I need a new screw, but I don't know where to find one.

try a screw at a hardware store, it should work fine.

Re: Beginner needing assistance

I have a jar filled with screws, and I couldn't seem to find one that fit nicely though. Are you sure it's that simple? I'd just feel better if it was the real thing.

Re: Beginner needing assistance

hole is probably stripped too then

Re: Beginner needing assistance

So that means I have to buy a new handle bar?? That kinda blows

Re: Beginner needing assistance

No. You dont need a new bar. Just get a screw from the hardware store these things for the mostpart are 30 years old so your gonna have to tak what ya get. If you really want the real thing buy a new cable assembly from 1977mopeds.com. They have alot of parts. Happy riding.
