This is a recent acquisition that has a bit of a history. It was built by Doug Bingham and raced by Bob Braverman. It was featured in Cycle Guide magazine in 1972. It was road raced and it also had a few runs at Bonneville. When road raced it used a Kawasaki 500 H1 engine and for Bonneville they bumped it up to the Kawi 750 H2 engine. The best run netted 126 mph.
Below I have posted the articles from Cycle Guide. Be sure to scroll them to see all the pages.
Cool little mini bike. I have had this bike for a few years. Started fixing it up a bit and then took a 2 year break. Finished it up a couple days ago. Not restored, just a good clean up and some paint. Kept the original paint on the tank. 75cc 2 stroke so it will move right along for a little bike.
1969 Moto Guzzi Ambassador with a few mods and customizations over the years. Current owner has had it since 1972. I installed the sidecar and a few other upgrades like one of my alternator kits that replace the generator and regulator. Its the early Ambassador with left side brake and right side shift.
