Hey, so im looking into buying and rebuilding a 1996 Tomos Targa LX with 12,000 mi. The guy says it needs a new carb but I want to replace more then that. I was thinking of rebuilding the engine and adding a new 70cc kit and replacing the seals and berrings on the engine. Its a A35 engine. I was also looking to make the bike a kinda scambler style bike something i can possible take off road if i need to. Im having trouble finding dual sport like tires that would fit on the bike. This of the list of parts i was planning on getting.

List:

Hey, so I was looking to get a moped because my dad likes to go camping on them a couple times a year and i want to suprise him by trying to build/restore a moped. The moped i was looking at getting was a 1996 Tomos Targa LX that has a broken carb and 12,000 miles. He says it idles then dies off. So hearing that it didint seem like a terrible bike to buy for $600. I was planning to upgrade the bike alot and try to make it a dual sport kinda bike something i can take off road if i need to. When i found your website i realzied you guys have everything for moped so im plannning to get everything from here. I was wondering do you guys have any tips or ideas for the bike?
