Hello All,

A friend gave me a 1978 Sears Free Spirit moped.

It was in his garage that was left there by the previous home owner.

The fork (steering) of the moped is locked and I do not have a key.

Are the keys for this moped all the same, meaning I can use the same key of another 1978 Sears Free Spirit?

If not, should I bring it to a locksmith to pick or just drill out the cylinder lock?

The moped is in fairly decent shape and very low mileage.

I plan to get this moped running before I start restoring it.

Also, are parts still available for this moped?

I broke the plastic lever for the Engine/Stop (engine switch).

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Ed
