I've been posting here about a strange pinging noise on my Peugeot 103; even though I been all through my bike looking, I couldn't source. Well, I sourced it yesterday, haha.
The sound got worse and worse until I started losing compression, dropped to 24mph max speed, couldn't idle for long, etc. I could hear the scraping and feel the engine pulling. Yikes. Don't know why it happened, mix was good, once I soft-seized on account of an air leak, I think.
Assuming I need a new piston and cylinder, cause it's running like SHIT now, should I just go ahead and kit the bike? It's a Peugeot 103 LS U1 non-variated (with 15/15 dellorto, new reeds,etc.)
