honda express runs amazing until

I am a new owner of a 1977 Honda Express, it starts/runs pretty well give or take some adjustments with the idle and maybe some cleaning. The real confusing thing is this: it gets up to 27mph pretty easy and stays right around there. When I go down a huge hill it will get upwards of 30-35 mph but often times after going at such a high speed it will lose power right after and inevitably stall. Usually if I turn it off and let it cool down, walk it a block it runs again. If I try to start it right after it will start but won't rev well, loses power and inevitably stalls again. Any ideas dr.s?

the timing isnt advanced enough to handle those speeds is my guess, when im going down large hills i never rev it at full i usually leave it at idle or a little above because the momentum will carry me down at 30 anyways
