Re: 1928 Ariel some wood and some tape ..

The factory records exist for the years 1927 to 1965 except for the first Leaders. They entries are in engine number order and as the frames were used in random order they are all over the place. However there is a frame index for 1928 so they are easy to find. Frame W5628 went to Dundee with model ...

1954 MKII for sale by auction

I have been contacted by the auctioneers asking me to let you lot know about this bike. Looks pretty well correct and original except for the oversized oil tank, missing tail light spacer, wrong tail light and missing front number plate.

Re: VCH.

1949 VCH production stared at CO101 and ended at 159, which makes 159-101+1=59 as the numbers are inclusive. However there are 4 blank entries although one of those appears in the 1950 listing and there is an 'engine only' entry. To confuse things this engine only entry is listed as a complete bike ...

Re: Oil pressure gauge fittings

All fittings and pipes are available from Drags, check your parts book for the part numbers, most parts books list the individual fittings. Complete pipes also available but you will need to specify original gauge as the modern copies use a different fitting and the pipe assemblies are made to suit ...

Re: Stainless or Not?

The Ariel and BSA FMG are very similar but not the same! The Ariel one has more rounded corners and doesn't have lugs for a front stay although it could do with them. It also has scallops for the fork legs that the Ariel doesn't, these are the type of inedible scallops by the way.
