Re: Finishing the rebuild.

I'd love to help but am too far away in Kettering. It sounds as if you should lock yourself in the garage with late nights and early mornings, no breaks until it's done.

Best of luck. Steve

Exhausts?

Hi all, has anyone got a set or parts of the exhausts for a 1955 huntmaster 650 ?

They don't have to be in good cosmetic condition just usable or repairable.

Cheers, Steve in Kettering

Drawings etc

Hello all, just wondered who to approach on the forum about specs for parts ?

I can make parts so in the course of building a couple of bikes it would be easier than trying to find every last bit.

Cheers, Steve

Hello from Kettering

Hello all, I was wondering if any members lived near me. The reason being that I'm in the process of building a bike or two. Apart from that, it would be nice to gain further knowledge of these machines. . I'm new to Ariels so when it comes to buying parts, I don't quite know if I'm getting the corr...

Yucky sq4 head

Hi all, here's a cylinder head I believe could only fit a square four. It's got gunky tarry stuff in the fins, which are good except for a few small broken ones. The various bits of tinware that were in it as you can see have rusted away to a large extent. I could sand blast/clean/strip/inspect it ?...
