Title: '71 guzzi
Post by: Bill Conquest on June 16, 2012, 03:33:13 PM
Hi    - I'm still considering buying a '71 ammbassador and am wondering if anyone knows how to check a vin #..before I travel to look. I've tried those vin check sites & they seem to lead no-where. Any ideas?
Thanks, Bill

Bengt Phorqs is a long-time Guzzi Guy with lots of tech info. He's been cooking ribs and washing 'em down with frosties today -left me alone to work on his fairing- but I do know he's in quarters. Try a PM to him.

Yes, and not just any kind of Frosties.  No training beer for this guy.  The ribs were superb, the beer was cold, the grandkids needed a certain amount of thrashing about in the pool and who better to whip up on than The Grand Dude.  A great time was had by all.

Oh, as for your question, a PM was sent in reply.  And it's Phorqs, not Forks.   [smiley=beerchug.gif]

No, that's really not Bengt. That's his cousin Broke Phorqs.

I'd like to go on record and say that the baby whale on the H-D is definitely not related to anyone in my gene pool!  While my rear shock pre-load may be at a higher setting, my physique is not remotely similar to this guy! [smiley=beerchug.gif]
