starter on 1982 Aspy

The starter on my bike was replaced 4 years ago. I didn't use the bike much in this period. It started to make a noise at first when engaging, now it spins freely until I rock the bike in gear. Any ideas , is the starter gone again?

The clutch is not engaging. Look up sprague clutch on this site. There are several solutions that do not require engine removal and $1500 labour.

Full disclosure, I bought my low mileage 1983 wih this problem for cheap and am still riding it.

All the best.
