Depending on exactly how far back you want to go, this is how I create
images for e.g. amd64:

sudo ubuntu-device-flash core 15.04 --oem=generic-amd64 --channel
stable -o 15.04_stable_amd64.img --developer-mode

however this does not start from the _source_ of the parts it
assembles, so you'd have to go further back -- and that exceeds my
expertise; I let other people handle that. They're on this list though
