When it is an Ape, of course.
Another little Italian lesson: ape is pronounced ah-pay, and means bee in Italian.
They are tiny 3 wheeled vehicles, nowadays seen less frequently in cities of Italy, but still found in small towns and the country. And now, I’ve discovered someone owns 2 of them in Myrtleford. He uses them out on his farm, they’re not registered for road use.
This little fellow was at one of the local garages, having some maintenance work done.
The motor is a whopping 50cc! The driving controls are smack in the middle of the interior, which doesn’t leave much room for a passenger. This model boasts a motor-bike type of control, with the throttle and gear shift on the handles.
