    I like it. Looks like a lot of fun. Though I am having a hard time trying to imagine a big butch Folgore para pottling along on it.

    Here is some more information that I received from friend of mine. Little did I know how RARE this beast was!!!!

    Mike,
    Nice score. Some little known lore on the beloved "BeeBee", short for Bambino Benito. This machine was beloved by its Italian Army operators and was known for never taking the soldiers where they didn't want to go, which was into action of any sort. In domestic service as ridden by the Caribinierri, it was known for being always too slow, yet always on time. I see your machine does not have original equipment lighting. Alas, this is sadly the norm. The original equipment headlight lens was embossed: "THIS SIDE TOWARDS ENEMY". In an unspoken ritual, these lenses were removed immediately upon receipt by the operator and either broken, buried, or thrown into very deep water. No original tail light lenses exist either as all were shot out during the vehicles numerous retreats, which the Italian Army records historically as "Advancing to the rear". I see you also scored the voluptuous dual saddle, listed variously as the "Gina" or "Sophia" in the parts catalogs. Be advised that despite appearances, loading a passenger is not recommended if any forward progress is expected, although the grab strap will secure a sheep at convenient working height. Remember; for engine longevity, always add a quart of Chianti at every third fill-up. To the operator, not the fuel.
    Best of luck with it,
    Dean
