Peugeot Vogue VS2 a Soft Seizure

This happened to me last weekend. I was driving on a hill and after a stop I was able to ride the moped only couple hundreds meters and an engine got stuck. After waiting over an hour I was able to start the engine again.

Today I started the moped and it did sound odd. I checked the cylinder and there were small scratches on both sides of cylinder. I didn't even bothered to take a look a piston.

Were I could find a new piston and cylinder for my moped?

I've been using 3% mixture on it. Is it possible that a carb is tuned off? Maybe too much air? The carb and the needle are original ones.

Plated bore so you can likely acid off the smeared aluminium and buff out the burnishing on the piston and throw on new rings. Give it a leak down test to see if you might have a vacuum leak in the casings.
