I've got a 1980 moby motobecane which i've brought back to life, or at least occasionally. She will start but only after a few hours of sitting. I can start her up, and ride ride ride get great speed, the idle is awsome, then i get to my destination and give her the old kill switch. I'll walk away for 10-15 min and get on and i can pedal till i die and she wont start. Its kind of annoying, but when she does start it's a dream.
My other question is, i haven't cleaned the points yet, which "fred" recommeded, although i'm quite puzzeled how to the cover of the flywheel off to get to the points and magneto and what not, if there are any moby lovers out there maybe they could give me the secret to getting the cover off, so far i'm having no luck... thanks mopeders
