Vespa Super Bravo 1996

A new moped in my collection, again a friend that had bought more than he could handle. I can’t get enough of these Piaggio mopeds, so i had to buy it.

It had a broken subframe and gear reduction, other than that only minor repairs and maintenance.

The engine got my standard treatment, DR 43 mm, SHA 13 mm and adjusted case and crankshaft.

Lots of pictures and comments in the picture gallery.

    1. Det må være 2 gear, men kender ikke modellerne med manuel gear.
      Nogle italienere kalder 80er+ modellerne for Bravo 2, som afløser for den første med rund saddel stang. Så det kan være forvirrende.
      Der findes så vidt jeg ved også en 3 gears.

    1. Hi, for the rear you can use universal shocks.
      For the front you need to find the parts from old stock. Ebay Italy is a good place, use the item numbers from the spare parts catalogue found in the technical section on my page.
      The fork seals are available several places new though.

  1. Hej Carsten.
    Har kig på en super bravo. den er næsten komplet, men mangler lidt motordele. Ved du om den passer motordele med bravo og Caio??

      1. Det skal dog lige nævnes at hvis det er en super bravo med kickstart og elektronisk tænding, så er der en del special dele. Men det meste kan stadig skaffes, Vespa har haft flere modeller med elektronisk tænding og kickstart.

  3. Hi Carsten, looks really great.

    Also Dig the Color combination. Only the Black and Red Super Bravo 3 looks better imo

    Would your recommended setup with the DR 43 and Dellorto Sha 13/13 also work with a standard italian moped Motor case ? Which Crankshaft would you recommend to go with it.?

    I have an italian Ciao Teen (4th edition) motor that needs a total overhaul and i would like to know if there are alternatives to the standard setup. The Cylinder on mine is labeled TC 02 ..

    It’s my first motor overhaul and i’ll use your great YouTube Videos as a guidance..

    1. Hi Mike. Yes the 43 mm DR goes very nice on a italian moped enginecase with the 13 mm SHA. I’d take the “racing” crankshaft from Mazzucchelli, they come in 10 and 12 mm versions, take the one that fits the cylinder kit you have or will buy. Model name: AMT 004 for 10 mm and AMT 156 for 12 mm wrist pin. It’s the best crank you can get.
