I collected my new to me motorbike over the weekend. She is a little frayed and tatty around the edges, but I am sure together we are going to have great fun!

Fiat Ducato 2.5TD Europa FFD 650 1991 model so an old lady, but drives comfortably. Plenty of tidying up to do, but appears to be mainly cosmetic. Feel like a kid with an early Christmas present.

Would that be a two wheel motorhome or a motorbike with a 2.5TD engine?
Whichever it is hope you enjoy it.

Welcome and hope you enjoy your purchase. Quite a lot of us on here are frayed and tatty around the edges, so your new van, at least, will be in good company!
