Ape Calessino

Perhaps old news, but it's the first I've seen of it. The Ape Calessino from Piaggio is a special leisure-style version of the Ape. The Ape is Italian for "bee" and to see a city full of these little guys buzzing around carrying their cargo from A to B is to imagine a hive of determined worker bees. Not flashy, not sexy, just doing their job. It's nice to see that once in a while the Ape can be spruced up with the ragtop, whitewalls and woody panels.
