Piaggio Vin Pre 1970 ?

Anyone have a line on where I can look up a "Short" Piaggio Vin # ?

Haven't had much luck/Everything wants a "Long" Vin (17 digit)

Thanks

What are you looking up?

Anything that predates standardized VIN is going to be difficult if not impossible.

I was lookin up my New Toy. I figured out it was a 1957.

If you bought an old Ape, good for you. They are sweet although no roof is kinda shit.

Tyler Christmas has a bunch of info on these, although his Ape is not as old as yours

Not to be rude, but it looks like a old smoker...

Not all Apes were produced with Tops. Even after 1956 (when they added a enclosed cabin.)

Piaggio was recovering after WWll so they would build and then sell whatever they could and the client could afford. Sometimes no windshield frame and glass were sold, I guess because of price.

Ok mine is the last 1.

150cc /4 speed /Electric start/Reverse

So far All I've done is remove the junk wooden box. The Motor starts right up.

It has at least 3 layers of Paint on it /Patina. Surface rust but no holes.

Turns Out For Sure Apes were sold StateSide. You can also see that Doors were an Extra $ Option. The first pic is of a Vespa Dealer Catalog. The second pic is of 2 Police MeterMade Trikes - StateSide. The Police ordered those 2.
