I am looking for spare parts for an very old piaggio vespa…

Customer Question
Hello. I am looking...

Hello. I am looking for spare parts for an very old piaggio vespa model 1955. Can you point out to me or give me name/s of some contacts for me to turn to?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

It is piaggio vespa model 1955 (very old)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

It is really my friend who is the owner. He does not speak english so it is me an ignorant woman who is trying to help him. I have tried on many spare part pages but all ask for year of model and in the boxes they dont give year so old. I tried also some Facebook page for piaggio in italy but it seems it is on line or closed at least there was no answer.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have a picture of this part which he needs but then I dont know how to send it and to whom. Is there in any way I can send this picture through Facebook because I dont know anything about the piaggo vespa if I am asked. We are in Iceland by the way.

Hi Chris (aka Moose) thank you for your response. I still need help. What possible more information could you need other than I have already given. This is Piaggio Vespa year model 1955. Did you get the photos I enclosed with my request.? They say it all I think.
