Hi everybody, so I have found this frame for sale and am quite fond of it....BUT....I'm a bit wary of buying it as I don't know anything about these bikes.

Could you tell me any info on Aprilia Bicycles?

Here's the picture:

Thanks. :)

Typical low-end gas-pipe tubing frame with low-end components. Everything is however relative. If it is £20 then it is not a bad purchase. If on the other hand they want 300 quid, I would steer clear and wait for something more appropriately priced.

Possible connection with Aprilia motorcycles from Italy, you would have to look into it, however it would be far from the first company to build bicycles and motorcycles, BSA, Triumph, Royal Enfield, Puch, Peugeot etc, let us know how you get on tracing its history
