Moped:

  • 1978 Honda Hobbit

My Hobbit had been garage stored for 12 years, with the gas mixture in tank! Local Honda dealer did some tuneup work, but did not clean the carb, and I KNOW there is varnish floating in there, causing sudden power loss & recovery. I'll be 80 this early Spring, but I'm in good shape, and use the moped even more than my like-new '85 Crown Vic! I will much value the cameraderie of M.A. members, and especially the advice! Hopefully, I will personally meet members in the Villa Park area. I am a lifelong bachelor who lives alone, who rues the day when they computerized cars so I could no longer do tuneups, etc. I'll value hearing from one or all! John
