Looking for a piston
I am looking for a new piston for my moped. The bike was made by Columbia in 1981. The motor is a Fichtel & Sachs, motor number 9796382. Hub-R 49 cm3. Type Sachs 505/1D.
If you would be able to instruct me as to where I would be able to find a new piston, I would be very thankful.
