did the Eldo ever come with disc brakes?

Actually '74 and '75 Eldos had a single front disc brake, '73 was still drum (mid-'73 they did some with four-leading-shoe drums, but they were titled as '74s also). No '75 Eldorados you say? Guzzi built one last batch of 131 Eldos for the LAPD in Sept.'74 all titled as '75s. This one is VIN 63062 and will be for sale after a little "freshening".

Mostly sentimental attachment - it was the bike I bought just after my (now ex) wife left me and my employer of 14 years outsourced my job. Spent the whole summer of '97 just riding around, free as a bird, spending my severance money.

Excuse my ignorance but, what is the difference between an Ambasador and an Eldorado?

Ambassador was a 750 with a four-speed, and the Eldo is an 850 with a 5-speed. There are a few other detail differences, but very minor.

The Ambassadors have a "prettier" rear drive casing too. You can tell the 750 motor because they don't have the additional horizontal ribs on the block below the cylinders, and the 4-speed trannies are not ribbed for my pleasure like the 5-speeds.
