Re: My SF31 Restoration Blog

Blimey, 9 years. I remember this thread was one of the first stories I read on here, when I had only had my SQ4 a few weeks. There's four Ariels in the workshop now! I know Simon, and its actually closer to 10 years as the auction was in July 2011. Scary how time slips by without you really noticin...

Re: My SF31 Restoration Blog

Why don't you guys start a new topic instead of adding to my 9 year old one? :?:

Re: My 4G Restoration Blog

An update. After today's run, I've now done a total of 315 miles on the 4G and all seems to be well..better than I expected if I'm honest. For the last 80 miles, I've been running it on Halfords Classic 20/50 oil, same as my '48 KG which also has shell bearings and a cartridge filter --- both bikes ...

FS: Ariel 1948 KG 500

The third and final Ariel that I'm selling. 1948 KG 500. The first year of Ariel's new twin. And this bike has all those unique 1948/9 features like the "ARIEL TWIN" timing cover, the shaped / contoured Lucas dynamo, early crankshaft & cases, CP gearbox ('48 only), poor turning circle ...

Re: Dragonfly clutch plates

I'm going to buck the trend and speak out in favour of bonded plates. On a couple of bikes, one an Ariel 4F and the other a Matchless Silver Hawk, I have lost all clutch lever control due to cork plates getting too hot in heavy town traffic. This happened about 20 years ago --- in fact, the only rea...

Re: FS: Ariel 1935 4F Square Four -SOLD-

Paul Miles does have some nice old horses and he does shop and change, maybe he will offer you one that you can't refuse. Paul and I are good friends and we often ride together. But he would never own / ride an Ariel and I would never own / ride a Velo. Weird, isn't it? I do like his Zenith though....

Re: FS: Ariel 1935 4F Square Four -SOLD-

Hi, just curious as to your dislike of Velo’s ? You obviously know your onions , looking at your fabulous 4F , so wondered what was behind it ? (I’m not defensive of them btw, I don’t own one but I’ve had one though) I've never owned one Dave so I shouldn't be so unkind. But having been in the VMCC...
