i just picked up a suuuper nice pea green 71 ciao that had been sitting in this woman's basement for the last 25 years. she is the original owner, still had the title, booklet and the vespa ad that came with it, as well as every service record ever for this bike. the paint is mostly perfect, just a little messed up here and there on the rack, has two rear baskets, all of the chrome is perfect, though a little dirty.
and at $200, the kinda rusty tank is 100% worth it. if it weren't for that tank, i could have been riding it tonight for moped monday.
the moral of the story? bikes that have been sitting are always worth a look.
