1977 Vespa Bravo

Hi all

I just recently bought a 1977 Vespa Bravo (At least I think, The picture in you gallery looks like it)

Could somebody tell me where to find out how to install a carb for it? Or if someone could tell me, it would help

Do you have a carb , or do you need to buy one ? bruce

Re: 1977 Vespa Bravo

Yes, I have the carb...

1 more question I thought of...

What does the wire coming out of the carb do? I think it links up to the left brake, but I put it together and nothing happens...


Re: 1977 Vespa Bravo

Sry, thought you could edit posts

1 more question though, The thing on the right handlebar, it looks like a throttle and I'm pretty sure it is, but it doesnt move... Im trying to pull it back and it wont budge... Anyway I might be able to fix this?

Re: 1977 Vespa Bravo

The wire coming out of the carb is the throttle cable,

The other end of it should go to the throttle control; the twist grip on the right handlebar.

If the thing on the handlebar that you are pulling on looks like a silver/gray lever about 5" long, that would be your front brake lever. The black rubber handgrip that twists is your throttle.

If you already have a carb I can almost guarantee that it needs a thorough cleaning. Here are detailed instructions on cleaning it -

Whats the black handgrip that twists?

My bad on this one, the short handle is on the left handlebar... It connects on the side with the belt.

Re: 1977 Vespa Bravo

On the handle bars- there are 2 rubber grips where you would place your hands. The grip on the right is the throttle control.
