Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

After a couple of days we're going back to 1926 for a very complimentary roadtest in Motor Cycling of the new 550 Black Ariel. Enjoy!

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Thanks Johnny. I'm going to have to rebuild the HP gearbox on my OG250 as it jumps out of 2nd and 3rd which is a bit of a nuisance. There's not much to it so it can't be that difficult to fix - I hope! And so we come to the end of this 1928 volume and the last pages in Motor Cycling to feature Ariel...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

So today's offering is chiefly from the 1929 model launch and the Motor Cycling reports on new models and improvements. Interestingly , as with yesterday's article there's a lot of focus on the 250 lightweights reminding us today how much these 'get to work' machines were valued back in the day alth...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Today we stay in 1928 and start with the Motor Cycling report on the 1928 'International' which includes a nice passage praising the new 250 Ariel. I was just saying over the weekend how the 250s are overlooked and underrated. This article is followed by more snippets on Ariels and other makes. Enjo...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

I missed yesterday as I was working on a 1994 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport which has covered 116 miles in it's entire life. It's in remarkably good condition considering it's spent much of its life covered up in an open fronted barn and a lot different to work on than my old pre-war Ariels! Today's offerin...

Re: Tecalemit Grease Gun

Excellent news. I've got an old Tecalmit and may also have a go at stripping it as well. That'll keep me occupied for a day of the lockdown!

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

And for today the announcement of the 1958 Ariel range only this time from 'Motor Cycling' in September 1957. Reading between the lines I think the reporter was questioning why there were no changes to the range for 1958 but it keeping with the motorcycling journalistic practices of the day it seems...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Glad to be of help Johnny! Firstly apologies for the difficulty in reading some parts of the text close to the spine of the volumes. Some of them are too fragile to risk flattening to place on the scanner. Today's pieces are from 1957 and 1962. The first is the review of the 1958 range from the Moto...

Re: Tecalemit Grease Gun

Hi Michael, I was browsing through a 1955 copy of the Motor Cycle and I found this which may be of interest....
