Just picked this up thanks to my dad that saw it for sale on the noticeboard at a company..

Its absolutely mint , its been hardly used, and appart from the speedo and new selle seat its original.. (these will be changed)

i know its not everyones favorite thing but ive got a thing for the underdog so this suits me fine :)

got it home and was possibly the first person to ride it in 15 years and it rides like a new bike... its been hung up in a garage all those years too and the tyres are perfect...

just got a bit of polishing to do but ....

ill let ya see the pics ;)

oh and if anyone knows the year or how to tell that would be appriciated :)

It was nothing particularly special in its day, but wow! - what a time warp machine!

Well worth saving and cleaning up just for the great condition it's in.

Nice one!

Yes they did, and in a way they continue to build mopeds under the Piaggio name.

That's a very nice bike, the condition makes it worth keeping!
