1971 Ambassador Rebuild Begins
« on: December 18, 2021, 10:11:22 PM »




This bike has not been on the road since 1974.
I disassembled it this week.
The tank has rust on the inside, everything else looks good.
I plan to tear it down completely and rebuild as close to original as possible, maybe some electric up grades.
Going to decide later on keeping patina or repaint.
