VERY new to mopeds!

I recently bought a 1977 vespa bravo from a neighbor kid that he rescued from a trash heap. Got the moped for $50! Hope that was a good deal but I am missing some motor parts, a muffler and a gas tank. Can anyone tell me if there are compatible moped to rescue parts from? I actually don't want it to be factory restored. Kindof wanna do some cool stuff to it. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

vespas are the best and have tons of great options for parts! take a couple of good pictures and let us see!

78 bravo was my first

many engine parts are compatible from Piaggio/Vespa models also some Kinetic parts will work but the quality is not as high as the Italian stuff

Vespa ciao, bravo and si have many interchangable parts. Less in common with the Grande, but still a large overlap. High part availablility and technical data avalability . See wiki. www.treatland.tv and www.fatcitymoped.com carries most of the parts you need as well as ebay, and the buy.sell forum.

grande, bravo and si are variated. ciao is a single speed. bravo is the only one with a detachable tank but a step thru style of another brand may work. all have interchangeable motor parts and pipes.
