Re: Ariel NH350 Pre 65 Trials on ebay

The frame being twin downtube, I agree not the best for trials, but i'm thinking about green laning. So standard 3rd and 4th gear would be good, so I could ride to green lanes.

Re: Recommendations for insurance

One year they put my premiums up a lot, I went on a web comparison site and every quote was cheaper, phoned them up and carole bettered the best quote I got.

Re: Lathe user?

I'm very happy with the result, the offside does need the speedo drive fitting, also the bearing isn't fully seated as reminder to me to replace it as it's shot (triumph part! not as good as Ariel parts!).

Lathe user?

I've got a '29 LF I've given up trying to find the correct rear wheel for it, so have dug a tiger cub wheel out of the shed which should do.

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