Hi all, I'm new to the site and to mopeds. I just bought a 1979 yamaha qt-50, but it needs some work. It's not running yet, but I hope to at least take it around the block by the end of august (my birthday!) According to the previous owner, the most critical thing it needs is to have the carb cleaned. Basically, I need some parts and general advice if anyone's familiar with this model. Any tips or tricks that you'd like to pass on to a moped n00b?

Parts I'm looking for:

Brakes

Battery Box

The thing that connects the spark plug to the spark plug wire*

Brake cables

Seat

Muffler heat shield

Battery

In approximate order of importance, starred items being most critical to get the thing running.

I can't wait to join the ranks!
