rigged a brake cable … rode this around for a good 2 hours today, just heating up the motor and slowly running it harder to break in the top end.

it is hard to start .. does not idle .. and seems to flood out if I load the motor too much -- by too much I mean, me at 280 lbs trying to go up a hill - eventually it will die out - and then miss and either slowly lose power or clear up and run fine again.

when I've had it running, seems to go pretty good, buzzed around rides good … not sure how to adjust clutch, seems to always want to go even when disengaged, but using the pedals as a kick start it will slip if you're not carful so - maybe I just don't know how to use it, maybe it needs an adjustment, maybe it needs a repair … maybe it will break in again after 30 years of sitting. have standard 30 weight oil in the transmission.

running gas at about 25:1 for break in .. might contribute to it wanting to flood out .. but, it could also be electrical, still uncertain on it. did try running an external condenser, but it seemed to run the same so disconnected it.

and I am running a 40 year old snowmobile coil for a rotax motor, so - not sure that is ideal, but it seems to work.

all in all - pretty neat to get the thing running again … tires were good enough to get this far, but can see they are splitting and could be dangerous .. so, need to find some new ones.
