Hello everyone, I just picked up a 1980 Honda PA50 with 1400 miles on it. Thing is, I don't know anything about mopeds! The Honda is in fantastic condition, but has been sitting in an elderly man's basement for over 8 years with no use.
I cannot get the engine to start. I have the moped in RUN position, the fuel switch is ON and the key is ON. Thereis gas in the tank. I'm not sure whether the DECOMP lever is the clutch (again, my moped ignorance) but with or without engaging it I cannot get it going. By pedaling madly I can get the light to turn on and the engine TRIES to turn over, but nothing.
