Bridge Classic Cars has for sale this unique and rare Piaggio Ape TM50 for sale. The Piaggio Ape is a wonderfully quirky van/scooter that are very popular in Europe and abroad for their small size and low running costs.
We imported this particular example a couple of years ago as it had belonged to one of our in-house restoration technician’s Grandfathers who had used it for many years in Portugal.
The Ape has had several key pieces of work done to it. A full carburettor rebuild and throttle cable along with a new front wheel bearing in order for it to pass through its MOT.
The exterior condition of the Ape is fairly good. The turquoise/green paintwork is honest and if wanted, with a machine polish could come up very presentable. The inside is sparse but very practical with a motorbike style handlebar and the signature twist shifter found on most Vespas for many decades.
