Re: FOR SALE : 500 OHV 1931 For Sale

They must have been one of the first then.The change over was close to that date. I have had several 1930 monoblocks. The date of manufacture is on the magneto body on the side of the base and on the tag near the drive gear. on the later ones. That one has the pressed alloy cover with Lucas Badge an...

Re: Black Ariel breathers

The last time I looked at the breather mounted on the top of the Cam case, it worked opposite to a breather. Is it there to lubricate the cam or something ? Put some oil there with an oilcan and it's sucked in. Nev

Re: FOR SALE : 500 OHV 1931 For Sale

Don't come up too often.. built in 1930 "verified" makes it eligible as Vintage under most rules. OHV 500 goes well. Headlight guards and the magdyno should be a monobloc that year. Levers not correct. All fixable but … takes time and money..Nev

Re: Adjustable mag sprocket

Not trying to knock it but with an uneven number of teeth, especially with small sprockets it doesn't work very well. A puller is essential for the mag sprocket. the Ariel ones are fine. I have an old original genuine puller that looks daggy but I couldn't be without it. Nev

Re: My Ariel 350 WNG

What is shown there looks 100% correct. You can see the tail (convoy) light, single wire running between the toolboxes. Some earlier pics show round "catches" rather than the toggle ones on the toolboxes. The toggle ones are the best. In my view. They are a good bike Luis (except for the w...

Re: Brake "wedge holder"

Trouble is , these things aren't looked at till they break. It's not easy to test their" condition". It's possible Drags haven't sold many. If you have a "chair" or race or ride fast you don't need a locked brake, which is what happens when this part fails. Nobody needs a locked ...

Re: My Ariel 350 WNG

Similar shape. You need the W/NG only mounting pieces (2) that go to hold both tool boxes on to the frame and each other. If you get them correct the location is easier. The lower attach point is the pillion footrest holder, not a strap. Did you get the dimensions for the brake cam I sent? Do they d...

Re: Brake "wedge holder"

Castings will cost more but CNC'd steel, iron, brass or alloy needs more numbers to justify the programme. You'd need the studs too from a practical viewpoint You could zinc plate the steel for corrosion and looks. You should probably support Drags if possible but there's the need regardless of who ...

Re: Brake "wedge holder"

Certainly an important item from a safety point of view. The material they are made of Diemetal . is unreliable when it's old.. Might be able to get them machined out of an alloy billet if a quantity needed. Time to act.? Nev

Re: Not W/NG but....

They probably joined the army to get to ride that stuff. Recruitment ads of the time were along those lines. The ordinary poor ba$tard couldn't think of owning a new bike. Nev
