Re: So it begins

Not me Bob, I need the three sets that I have. Note that they are called "club spares" so why go to Draganfly?

Re: Shock absorber knocking

To all those people suggesting fitting oil seals to Square Four valve guides, do not waste your time.

Re: Different size Ansti stirrup

Re: Centre stand for 250cc LB & LF, 1929 only

Jim, yes, yours was one of the three. Have not finalised a price yet as they still have to be machined but it is not likely to exceed £40.00.
Have received your email. Trying to work out the best way to get the stuff to you.

Centre stand for 250cc LB & LF, 1929 only

Regards, Roland.

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2017

Hi Steve,

I see that the Ariel 'Cammy' at the Sammy Museum still has it's oil filter on the wrong way round. I told them about that a few years ago but obviously either forgotten or ignored. Having it on that way round collapses the internal filter element, assuming it still has one!
