My Ambassador project (basket case) which has sat for a year partly assembled and looking forlorn, mostly due to my lack of knowledge in the art of electrickery and the previous owner's bodgery, has burst into life after farts and pops and running on one cylinder and numerous nearly theres. The engine is now running like a Guzzi should, sounding sweet. I have no idea yet if the gearbox works and the wiring still needs conecting to lights and stuff but, it lives! A few more battles ahead, probably, but there is now light at the end of the tunnel. Hurrah!

Well done, that feeling when an old bike bursts into life after a long lay up is brilliant.

Looking forward to hearing about the journey towards roadworthyness
