I have no clue how that happened to be honest. Seemed to be in working order. Took motor off to clean and hooked clutch cable back up and all of a sudden pedals didn’t want to move. Thought maybe I popped a spring inside or something and BOOM ! I had to clean the chunks and fine bits out. I bought as a project bike, and project is what I got lol. Also bought a moto guzzi robin and a batavis for projects. Can wait to see what they have in store for me ! I did notice when trying to back the bike up that it seemed like it was locking up , so I probably did it myself. Now to see if the other side has any issues.
