    Hi folks,

    So I decided to replace car and El with a motorized bike. I found a guy selling one cheaply and, bam, here I am.

    I don't know anything about engines. I know bikes reasonably well. I figured having a project was a great way to learn.

    Here I am already with a question. .duh.

    I rode the bike home from the seller this afternoon. Seemed fine. Now I can't start it and I'm wondering if I'm just too much of an engine noob.

    The engine is a 66cc. Not sure of make. The clutch lever is a brake-lever style, and it has a cord starter.

    Assuming that nothing's broken and I just don't know what I'm doing, how should I start this thing?

    Thanks,
    EN
