Sparta is a dutch company that started with assembling bicycles. Later
on in the early 1900's they also build motorcycles and after WW II they
started with the mopeds. The moped industry was booming in the the
Netherlands at that time and the Sparta company eventualy based their
entire company on the production of mopeds. After the moped craze
collapsed in 1974 they went back to producing bicycles which they still
do. Sparta mopeds have been produced from the early 1950's till present
day with the sparta met.
Their mopeds have had various styles and versions. From simple add-on
bicycle engines till complete mopeds which had a motorcycle version as
well.
The sparta buddy is one of the later mopeds, they have been produced
from about 1972 till 1984. Sparta mopeds have always had JLO engines
untill the JLO company went broke in 1969. After that they have sachs
engines. Same goes for your sparta buddy. The ignition is usualy
provided by bosch and is not hard to replace. Replacing a magneto
doesn't sound very logical to me. Better check if the condensor and
ignition coil function properly. Also check the ignition points.
