I recently procured a '79 Batavus and have started to fix stuff on it. I figured I would try to get the engine going first, then deal with less important stuff later. So, I got new spark plug, wire, fuel lines, etc. I managed to get a fat blue spark. However, when trying to start it, I receive a large shock through my arms. I have checked the kill switch and it works fine (and is 'on'), but it is about the only circuit that is good as all other wires are just kind of exploding from the moped. My question: does the whole circuit (bulbs...etc.) need to be in place for me to avoid this shock, or is there a simpler fix?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
