Congrats on the sale. Someone has bought themselves a beautiful looking tucktuck, and a unique 'TUK TUK' licence plate too.

Owning a tuktuk or ape not for the faint of heart
These vehicles are a ton of fun to own and drive but parts are hard to come by and the owner must be a pretty good mechanic and have a good repertoire of cuss words and be used to working in tight spaces so in other words you have adopted a child that requires patience and care along with attention to detail

May see it parked at Randol's someday.

Or at the Lapoussiere in Breaux Bridge.

Hi Everyone,

I'm really happy to have the Tuktuk and it was great to meet Capt. Gary-great guy and really helpful and generous with his time.

I'm not online too much but I'm sure this won't be my last visit to this forum.

Cheers

Welcome to MV from Latina, central Italy. Here three-wheeled Piaggio Ape vehicles are common to see around on the roads and you don't know how many times I have cursed them on the narrow roads where I had no room for overtaking. On curvy mountain roads it's like meeting a cart pulled by a mule, they go at 10mph and make your engine sweat.

Thanks everyone

Attila,
My wife and I took a trip to Italy in 2019 and the Ape was all over the place. That's what got me interested in these three wheelers. I still haven't driven an Ape but this Tuktuk sure is a lot of fun and something I enjoy working on (plenty more work to come I'm sure).

Fried Okra, Randol's is in range and a great idea but La Poussiere would be a day trip on the Tuktuk! Maybe one day though...
