Re: Ariel sign

I think this is the 18K bike he was selling...a Royal Enfield with a rather nice patina, and probably a much better buy for the money. I'm sure I've seen this MF advertised recently although I can't remember where...and to be pedantic, these were described by Ariel as "Inclined" models rat...

Re: Ariel sign

The same seller was selling a Sunbeam splined rear drum / sprocket (all teeth gone) for £200. Another photo of the bike:

Re: Urgent: Need to borrow working Lucas KSA1 Magneto.

Paul, nice to see my old 30 being used. Had couple of good rides on my 27 recently, that's not going anywhere. Dave I'm loving it Dave. Given it a paint job, replaced rear sprocket, cables, wiring, chains etc, and added tool boxes, speedo in tank, H52. But have left that sporty engine well alone. D...

Urgent: Need to borrow working Lucas KSA1 Magneto.

Urgent! Can anyone in the UK loan my mate a working KSA1 magneto for his '29 Black Ariel? This photo was taken on yesterday's Dorset Section VMCC Camping Weekend Run and the magneto gave up. We're meant to be taking part in next Sunday's Banbury Run, so far too late to get his mag rewound. Does anyo...

Re: Black Ariel oil consumtion rate ?

Most of the oil consumption on my '30 Model F is due to the designed venting on the primary and rear chains.

Re: Classic Bike Insurance : A Rant.

That sounds very high. My premium with PJ is around £90 for the Norton (agreed value £6,000) and the Guzzi (agreed value £2,500). I do believe that most of the brokers use Equity Red Star as the underwriters - PJ certainly do for mine. I have too many bikes....pro rata, my premium is less than yours.

Re: Classic Bike Insurance : A Rant.

My favourite time of year? Err, no! Just got my insurance renewal....so here we go again... :roll: Last year, I made the monumental decision (for me) to finally move away from Carole Nash...and went with Peter James. And the latter have been good to me over the last 12 months, their phone service is...
