Re: pulling to the left

Hi, have you checked the plunger springs ? The chain side spring gets more grief due to the torque pulling on the top chain line which tries to lift only the left plunger .

Re: Black Ariel photo

Yes you're right Chris. The G should have a triangular toolbox but the customer may have wanted a back rack for practical reasons and ordered it like this? ?
Thanks Andy for a great photo, I am still looking for 28 rockers to go in the rocker box I got from you I have tried slovenko klub.

Re: Black Ariel photo

I think it is a 1930 model G. If you zoom right in you can see the "special "outline. Also it has the timing side breather in front of the tappet adjustment cover. Gear change gate on tank and chrome tank started in 1930. Straight through pipes should sound nice !

Re: 29 colt 250 bracket on gearbox for stand spring ?

Thanks Bertie, that looks simple enough. I was led to believe that the bracket was made of 1/4" steel bar.

Re: Again.... Jaap Fijma and Piet van Oosten

Also the 3 riders are all on 1929 250s. The upright gear change, 5 1/2" front brake, and timing side cover visible on the right hand bike all point to 29. Great photos, thank you for sharing them.

Re: Again.... Jaap Fijma and Piet van Oosten

The Ariel with sidecar is a 1930 model G. You can just make out 'special ' on the timing cover so the TT in the headlamp will be pre 2nd WW.
