Bee Awesome

I'm going Ape Crazy over this Piaggio. These things are super rad! Basically a 3 wheeled scooter, they were built as a way to get people moving goods cheap, and to stimulate a down economy fast! The Ape (err Ape is italian for Bee, figure that out) is cheap to build and shares common parts with most vintage scooters, so there's no worries for developing countries.  Cool thing is? They are still in full production since their start in 1948. Plus they come in tons of configurations! Like this Ape Bus found over at ApeVintage. Or you can build a new life in your own Ape home. And always, people have to out do each other, constantly wanting to be faster.... That's right, that's a Ducati fitted to the rear. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-evMgb-mR0]
