So this morning I stumbled across an ad for a "Pegasus Rocky" moped. Never heard of it before, but I recognized the iconic Sachs clutch cover and thought back to my first Clinton moped fondly. I went to check it out and after chatting with the seller, agreed to a sale (now the fun begins).
The motor turns out to be a 505/2 speed manual transmission (pardon my failure of nomenclature). From what I can find, it seems like this bike might be as rare as the Pegasus it is named after... great! Also a bit frustrating due to lack of easily obtained information... All that said, it's got a lot of potential to get back on the road with a little help!
So here's the old gurl's issues!
1.) The twist shift is completely missing both the cables necessary to change gears, and I'm not having much luck seeing how they connect or any clear diagram of their connection.
2.) The starter clutch cable has been replaced at some point, bypassing the decompression valve. Im wondering if that's an issue? Is the decompression valve actually a necessary component? Can I leave it bypassed, or should I somehow finagle it into use again with a custom cable?
3.) Twist grip throttle is missing. This is not much of a big deal IMO, easy enough to hit the local used parts shop. Unless I'm not seeing some crucial deviation from the norm as far as these being relatively universal?
4.) Missing airbox (typical).
Any sagely wisdom from our crew of Sachs fan-boys would be greatly appreciated! I'll try to snap some more/better
photos tomorrow to show y'all what I'm working with.
Thanks in advance,
