This is my first post. Thank you in advance for all your help and advice.
I just bought a 1985 garelli monza gt. It is a 50cc 2 stroke. The clutch cable and brake cables are missing. The electrical connections on the brake levers are disconnected as is the kill switch (also missing). The headlight is also gone. My problem is the engine will run if I pedal it and engage the clutch while on the stand. If I ride it and try to start it...nothing. Another weird thing is when I get it running on the stand, if I take my feet off the pedals, it dies! I don't know if it is an engine/frame ground problem? I checked the bolts and they are tight. My next step is to remove the mounting bolts, engine and clean the frame/engine mounting points. any other ideas? I am interested in any leads on cables for this ped. Thanks so much.
