moped repair in Sacramento CA

Hi, I have a 1974 Vespa Ciao I'm trying to get running. I think the spark is too weak and I know almost nothing about magnetos. I'm looking for anyone in the Sacramento of Sierra foothill area that works on older mopeds. The dealers are no help whatsoever. Any suggestions? Thanks,

Ray

What part of the Sacto area? There is a loosely knit group in the area that have mopeds. Try to work on it with online help. Use Fred's Guide and the search tool on this site. Check the plug wire carefully.

I'm in the Sierra foothills, east of Sacto. Good tip on the plug wire, I'll check it out. Where can one get parts for these old machines? Can parts for newer machines be adapted? Thanks,

Ray
