Finally got my first Moped! It was a barn find and therefore needs a little lovin. I can't seem to start it.

I've checked the spark - spark seems to be good

Cleaned out the carburetor - pretty clean not much gunk there

It seems that the clutch isn't catching. But since this is my first moped, I'm not sure what it's supposed to feel like. When I pull the clutch, I can easily push the bike and it doesn't seem like the engine is turning over. I already checked the transmission fluid and the level was okay. Is it possible that the clutch is too worn out? (According to the Odometer, it only has 900 miles)

Are there any other things I should be checking?

Thanks!

J
