I GIVE UP!

I own a Jawa Model 207 moped that at one point a few months back was a damn fine machine that ran like a top. One day I parked it next to the house and the next day she refused to run. She has continued to deny me ever since.

I can now take the carb apart in my sleep (as I have dreamed of doing exactly that) for all the times I've done it. Gasket seal is on the intakes in case of air leak. Good spark from Tranzimo and compression blows thumb out of hole. Pet cock is not problem as I have removed it and fitted a straight fuel line to the carb (flow is excellent).

I am at the end of my rope with the bike and it's such a clean moped. It really did run nicely I swear.

So the short of the story is does anybody in the Chicago-land area know of a moped repair shop or someone who's willing to lend their services to me in exchange for monetary compensation. I will travel to get the damned thing fixed though I don't want to pay a whole lot if possible (I only paid $60 for the frick'n bike).

Help would be very appreciated. THANKS!
