Found on eBay: 1969 Moto Guzzi Ambassador

This week we're ready to get out on the road and ride, and this classic Guzzi looks like the perfect bike to do it on. With just 22k original miles, this Ambassador appears to have been lovingly maintained (but still ridden), and it's already set up for touring with a period fairing and bags. All it needs is, well, you.

According to the auction, it is a two-owner bike. Originally purchased by a motorcycle mechanic from Detroit (who worked at the Guzzi shop where it was purchased), the first owner kept it for 26 years before selling it to a friend who moved to Florida. The Wixom touring package and the touring seat were installed when the bike was new. It's just received a full tune-up, a new battery and all new fluids. It's in need of a set of new tires, but other than that it's ready to go.
