First test - not the best

Got the 1977 Moby back together today, and gave it a trial run.

Bike will only run on full choke, with some throttle. Can't even make it around the block without dying. Hoping the crank seals aren't shot.

I did a good carb clean, and this is the same symptom it had before I did anything with it. Don't know how the pilot circuit works on the gurtner carb, so maybe I missed something.

Going to check timing, compression etc. tomorrow. Any idea what is a good compression figure, for this bike (Motobecane 50V)?
