So...

i have a 1977 Twin Sport Cimatti/Minnereli Moped. i purchased it in 1997 with a clean and clear illinois title. i got it because i was tired of riding my bicycle i used it. i got caught by the cops about 10 times before my parrents made me put it in the barn "till i was 16" and there it sat. i have never titled it. when i was 16 i started it up one day rode it over to a friends house and then hung out... went to leave and i tried to start it and NOTHING... never fired up again. it just rot.... so i have the itch to get it RESTORED!!!!

now the damn thing is italian and they are few and far between. so parts are super hard to come by and the/a service manual is IMPOSSIBLE!!! but i found this....

Parts Bike

we have been bardering back and forth. i dont want to pay more than 150 for something i am just goign to tear apart and not even use half of.... "HIS Bottom dollar is 200" the original price on the bike (relisted a few times) was 350

What should i do?

PS.... this is what mine looks like but it is red
