Just bought a new to us 1978 Batavus HS50 for my son and it was running when he tested it. He drained the gas and threw it in the back of his outback and when we got home we can't get it going.

The engine starts and runs - however it is clear that either the back wheel or the pedals have something holding them back.

I disconnected the rear brake cable / that isn't it.

Suggestions???
