I have a 84 Aspencade I just picked up a couple of months ago that I have been trying to work the bugs out of, it was doing the same thing when I first bought it. I changed the oil and filter, new plugs and battery (battery was a lot of the problem), also run a 1/2 can of seafoam in your gas, that should clean any sludge out of the carbs, you may want to get your carbs adjusted, lots of guys say that makes a big difference.

changing fluids and filters and adjusting carbs sounds like a good place to start thanks....
