not shown in the current register of owners, but back in 2000 it was owned by a certain Mr Ed Rudler, so it's not surprising the condition it's in.
I'm not up on Aprillia prices but that does sound a bit on the heavy side, although equally also out of my pocket range!

Is that a wireless, heater, or something else above the front passenger's feet?

By the size of it you'd think it had been converted to a Hybrid...  I'm going to have to look at the photos I have of Aprilia interiors and work out how I missed it all these years.

You should just be able to see the battery box in these photos of an early 1st Series car.

FLE 851 was most recently owned by Bob Polley, it had its engine rebuilt at Omicron and was then sold by European Classic Cars to the current vendor who has resprayed it green instead of the previous colour, black. The price is top end compared to recent sales lower in the 30K bracket, but in Italy they are often advertised for more.
Here are a couple of photos of it in the nineties and in 2000.

yes, seen that one it looks a good project, looks in need of a bit of tidying up from the close up photo's, but hey nearly 28k less to do that with  ;D

Big do it yourself kit! looks well worth the money, although it says believed to be complete there's no sign of the engine and gearbox ???

I had a quick look at it today, there is an engine and gearbox with the car. Most of the interior could be restored and as the body has been stripped, you can see exactly what needs to be done welding wise. The front and rear suspension units look fantastic, they have been totally rebuilt by Omicron.
Chugga would have the body done in no time at all, especially as he has had so much practice! ;D

Beginning to look very....very keenly priced if you're handy with the welder/DIY aspect
