1991 Jawa issues

I have a Jawa and I’m having issues getting the slack out of my throttle cable and it’s not snapping back very well. Second issue when in bicycle mode every now and then the rear tire locks up and I have to back the moped up then it frees up. I know the big chain is a bit rusty. Thanks for any help

Re: 1991 Jawa issues

Could be an issue with the free wheel for the tire locking up maybe. Has it ever happened with riding with the engine on?

As for the slack, you'll probably need to shorten your cable of you've got too much slack

Bought it all beat upped and restored it. Did a couple of rides up the street so far but it didn’t lock up
