Back to the '50s: Piaggio Ape Calessino

We suppose only the Italians can make three-wheelers look so cool... :-)

We saw these images on Motoblog and well, aren't they cool? The three-wheeler in the pics is the Piaggio Ape Calessino and from what little we can understand (Motoblog is an Italian site...), it's a limited-edition model based on a 1950s/1960s machine, which also appeared in some Hollywood movie. More details on the Motoblog site here.

Buy one of these and your GSX-R riding mates will be left eating your dust. Maybe

Other interesting three-wheelers:
The amazing Piaggio MP3
The Gilera Fuoco 500
The Carver One: A three-wheeled superbike?
Pal V-One: The flying trike!
Campagna T-Rex: Tiff Needell tests the maddest trike ever...

Some old Vespa advertisements. Cool...

I own a 1956 APE CALESSINO, completely restored. I have not made up my mind if I am going to sell it yet. I may be able to find you another one if you can afford the cost. I hunted for a year before I found mine, but I made contacts at the same time. Give me a holler if you want more info. Larry Email: mail4luckyman@msn.com
