New Member with P401 looking for other similar owners

Messaggio da Seanmacbean »

Greetings.
I have just brought what I think is a P401, out of years of storage, to my farm and will now start restoration project.
I still have to clean and decode the VIN but it looks like AE3T and mudguard looks like P401. Can anyone confirm from the photo below?
Who else out there owns P401 that can be contacted for advice?

It is a P401 because of the frontal Piaggio badge. It seems modified. The direction indicators are not original.

The join between windshield panel and lower frontal panel has been filled. Usually found with a lot of rust along that seam - Ken
