Dad's new old Christmas present

Does Dad like his "new" Scout? Shortly after I was born in 1971, Dad bought a new blue International Scout 800B. When I was 17, he sold it because it was getting very rusty. Of course, now he wishes he had just put it in a barn somewhere!

A few months ago, my sister saw this 1970 800A Scout on her way to work. The children and Mom all went together to buy it for Dad's Christmas present. It took some work to get it hauled home and running. We had to rebuild the starter, install a new battery and mount a gas tank. But it was worth it. He was very pleasantly surprised.
