Orange Piaggio Ape model MP 600 engine size 187cc made in 1976.
Made in Italy in 1976, where it was purchased by an italian farmer to harvest his vinyards in Solofra Montoro Superiore Avellino in southern Italy, much loved and cherished by its owner up until 1993 when he passed away. His sons refused to sell or dispose of their father's beloved Ape. They decided to keep it stored in a barn on the farm.
Back in 2007 DUCK DUCK Billboards found it under a mountain of hay and in a pretty bad state. Having explained to the two sons our intention (to fully restore and use their fathers pride and joy) they were over the moon to let us purchase this precious vehicle. It was taken to the local village repair shop were it had been looked after by the same mechanics during its working life. It was completely restored to to its original glory, not only pleasing the locals who remembered the owner but also all the restoration work was carried out by local mechanics who are also Piaggio Ape enthusiasts.
