Strange spares

The Club has been contacted by a guy who has a large box full of Ariel spares he wants to get rid of. Each has a works drawing with it.

Re: 1955 Huntmaster questions

My FH always eventually wet sumps. Years ago I put a thread in the bottom of the sump plate so a bolt could screw in. - It is a lot easier to drain surplus oil that way.

Re: Cheval

Moving Motorcycle from UK to Germany

Does anyone have any experience of doing this? I want to get a bike from GL15 UK to Glashutten 61479 Germany. Is i still possible with restrictions to ship it in a van or will it have to be crated? Any idea of the cost involved?
