WELCOME MY PIAGGIO CIAO FRIEND
THE HISTORY OF CIAO PIAGGIO
The Piaggio Ciao (ciao means "hi" or "bye" in Italian) is a family of moped / bicycle produced by Piaggio from 1967 through 2006. Its the most iconic of Piaggio mopeds ever produced together with Vespas.
It mounts a 49 cc engine that can make it run up to about 40 km/h. It is very convenient as with a full tank (2£) it can cover nearly 130 km. It can also be converted into a bicycle by pressing a small button on its back. This function is vital when you run out of fuel and need to reach the closest petrol station...
The Ciao uses a belt drive, unlike most other mopeds which are chain driven. Some models have an automatic continuously variable transmission (Variator). Breaking is by front and rear drums. Power for the lamps, horn, and ignition is from a magnet; there is no battery. On newer models, the plastic fuel cap also serves as a measuring cup for the 2% oil-fuel mixture.
To be used in the UK it needs: UK Number Plate, MOT and Moped Insurance. MOT is 20£/Y.
The Historical mopeds (40 years old) DON'T NEED ROAD TAX / MOT/ ULEZ AND CONGESTION CHARGE!
Note: I have 8 between Ciao, Si, Bravo and Vespa 50 Special to sell
I place them on Gumtree UK, Shpock UK or Facebook Market: search for: Piaggio Ciao

I LOVE VESPA PIAGGIO CIAOS
Here are some of my loved ones
A LIFE ON A CIAO PIAGGIO
My life on a Ciao Piaggio started in Italy where I come from.
I was only 6 year old when I started desiring one of them..just look at my eyes...
I saw my aunt Pia on a Ciao which she got after her last school exam! Very lucky...
She was always kind and allowed me to try it with her (standing of the foot rest and holding the handlebar with my cold hands)
In the meantime I was getting used to ride my bicycle..
At my 14th birthday my parents finally decided that I could ask Pia if she would gifted me with her Ciao
and she agreed ....
I started to love the Ciao Piaggio.
I'm 50 years old now and I have been living in London for 20 years.
I'm still in love with the Ciao.
I use it every day to go to work
across London from North Finchley to South London where I work as a paediatric surgeon..
Every day it's a pleasure to get around with my Ciao.
I only spend 2 pounds for 140 kms and when I finish my fuel I convert it to a bicycle and I start pedal ...
I learned to do home maintenance alone without relying on any mechanics...
saving a lot of money!
You can see my shed where I enjoy fixing them!
Recently I repaired an old ciao bringing it back to life. It makes me feel like operating my patients and get them better...
My life is very happy with my Ciao.
