Slow Puch

I got this 1hp Puch Maxi recently, and it's running strong - just really slow!

The carb was really corroded and stuff - so for testing purposes I put a brand new 15mm carb on it, and it's still going like 20mph. It's somewhat loud, kinda rackety, and it knocks a little. There doesn't seem to be an air leak anywhere (anymore at least). I tested compression on it, and got 120 - is that good?

Is this timing / points do you think?

So far:

Fixed air leak issue

Cleaned cylinder and checked rings

New carb

New spark plug

I hope this thing isn't supposed to be going 20. I measured the rear sprocket, and it's the same size as my Newport (which does not go 20)

Thanks,

Beamer
