Questions - 1980 Express II

Postby Breaze » Mon Jun 08, 2009 8:26 am

Hi all,
Over the last 6-8 months, I obtained a 1981 Express SR and a 1982 Suzuki FA50 - both were in pretty bad shape but with the help of this forum, they are running great.

My latest find was a 1980 Honda Express II - happened upon it at a garage sale unexpectedly - it is beautiful - looks almost new, paid $225.00 for it.

Got it home, cleaned the carb, got a new plug, replaced the fuel lines, pumped up the tires (in surprisingly good shape), replaced the trans oil, and tried to start it. No spark.

I plan to look at the points (first experience there - although I used to replace points and condensers on my old truck) but I have a few questions:

1) I read in some forum that this moped/noped needs a good battery to start - is that true?

2) The condeser seems to be attached to the coil up under the seat - I can't find anywhere to buy just the condenser - only the full coil mechanism - any suggestions?
