    Default 1961 SR59 Berlin scooter

    I recently acquired a restored 1961 Berlin. It had been in storage for several years. It will not fire. Any suggestions on diagnosing this problem or finding parts will be appreciated.

    I'm not framiliar with that make of scooter. Is it a 2 stroke? 4 stroke? battery ignition? magneto ignition?
    Start with the basics. Make sure the tank does'nt have rancid gas in it. Be sure the petcock is flowing gas. Pull the plug and be sure its gapped right and is getting spark or not. Check for blown fuse or shorted wires....let us know what you find.
    Good Luck...Rod
