Chain slippage on motobecane

Alright so I bought a motobecane that did not come with a chain so picked one up off of treats, shortened it to the right sized and put it on. The chain works well enough to turn over the engine to check for spark, but it gets caught up so I can’t get it to run. Are there chain tensioners I should check out or what?

Yes, you need the chain tensioner. The style tensioner you need will depend on what year Moby you have.
