Just purchased two 1977 Motobecane mopeds last night. I went to start them up today and had no luck. Before I bought them I took them for a ride and they ran beautifully. Now today both wont start and they are leaking a little bit of gas. I reached out to the guy and he said it sounds like I flooded the engines. The guy had them for over 10 years and took good care of them and even gave me a printed out manual that he downloaded from here. He told me I flooded the engine ( i did try to start both about 5 times each) and to let them sit for a day or so. Is there anything else that i should do? These are my first mopeds so I am not very knowledgeable.
