Thank you Dan,
My moped came to life today!!! YAY!
I found out the answer to that loose clutch lever thing today as I was working on it-
On the lever itself there is a screw. Un-screw that & make it loose. Push the cable in as far as you can. Use needle nose pilers to pull the cable outwards out of the lever if necessary. Tighten the screw. Cable should be tight.
Do you know if Columbia's are supposed to have odometers?
