originally i posted a thread asking advice about why my 1977 pinto moped was acting like it wasn't getting enough fuel and i wanted to thank everyone that took the time to message me ,

I found the issue and the verdict is grim , i took the engine out of the bike and split the case , the crank is so rusty it actually has chunks missing out of it and the con rod , the crank seals and bearings are totally shot but the transmission is spotless clean , the cases aren't pitted at all which is shocking , the bad news is i already have $616.59 in the bike and the wife is about ready to twist my head off at the shoulders because even if it was running i dont think i can get my money back , i would have to throw another $120 at it to get it completely ship shape again ,

the bike has a ton of new parts , tires tubes , condenser , cables , carburetor , petcock , air filter , seat ect , is this thing worth fixing or should i just take the loss and part it out ?
