Re: High level pipes on VH oil tank clearance

None on my Armours high pipe, I had to tweak it a bit to actualy fit.
On the original pipe there is an extra slight bend just before the oil tank.

Re: ARIEL 500 RED HUNTER 1934

It looks partially restored to me ( Tank and rims) but looks very complete and worth completing any work needed to get it back on the road.
