For the moped, how about:
clean the carb
change the sparkplug
Decorbonize the exhaust
lube the cables
Check the tank for rust
put in a fuelfilter anyway
make sure the fuel is mixed right (1:50)
check the tires for damage (have the innertubes been changed since
1979?)
Check the brakepads
see if all screws are tight
check the light
check the spark (blue is okay, yellow is too light)

Few tips for when driving:
the throttle is not just an on off switch
pretend you're invisible, it will explain the behaviour of other
motorists

Mobylette was a good choice. :)
