Vespa 98

Today, April 23, 2016, is the 70th anniversary of the patent filing by Piaggio & C. S.p.A for “a motor cycle with a rational complex of organs and elements with body combined with the mudguards and bonnet covering all the mechanical parts.” Okay, I’m sure it sounded better in Italian, but you get the idea. Since then, 17 million Vespa scooters, give or take, have been built and sold worldwide. Wish your Vespa (or whatever other scooter you own) a happy birthday today, and go for a ride.
