Finally got my Moby on the road, woo hoo! Everything seems to be basically in order, starts right up and idles fine, clutch is smooth, etc. It pulls great, but seems to top out at about 23, so I'm guessing I need to do a little fine-tuning.
Two specific questions:
1. I'd like to clean out the exhaust port, but I'm concerned about the copper crush gasket that seals it. Are replacement gaskets available somewhere, or is there an alternative that's commonly used?
2. Is there anything specific to these bikes that I should look for other than the basics? I've cleaned the carb and gas tank and done the usual stuff, but this is my first Motobecane and it hadn't run in about 20 years before today. Is there anything less obvious that I need to check? It's a 1979, variated, 12v system, Gurtner carb, about 900 miles.
What a great ride this thing has, I'm really excited to get it running its best. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
