motobecane carb float stuck

We just bought a 77 motobecane 40T that has set around for a few years. It was well cared for when last used, but the gentleman that had it fell ill and it was never prepared for storage.

We cleaned the fuel system and added fuel, but the carb leaked (apparently a stuck float???). We would like to remove the carb and clean it and check the function of the float, but can't figure out how to remove the throttle and choke cables.

Any help / suggestions for getting this baby running would be greatly appreciated.

Also wondered if there is a service / shop manual available for these machines?

Many thanks
