Lot #385.1 - This 500F resided in the same small Italian town for decades and was formerly in the long-term ownership of one person, from whom the current owner purchased it in 2011. A complete restoration was done by a small family-owned restoration shop in Liguria, Italy, which does fewer than 10 projects per year. Taken down to bare metal, any traces of corrosion were repaired, and it was painted to a show-quality level. All bright trim has been re-plated or polished, and the interior has been completely redone in correct factory finishes and colors. Mechanically, the transmission has been rebuilt and all new brakes, clutch, and wiring loom have been fitted. It has a 500cc/18hp motor and a 4-speed transmission.
