Re: Transfers - Jerry Mortimore's articles Set '93 to to Feb'94

Thanks, John & Jerry. I have had a look at the Club archives as you suggested but the Cheval articles on transfers are from 1993-4 so they not there as far as I can see. All it is is that I am in the later stages of painting/restoring both a 1959 VH & a 1959 NH & am not sure about which ...

Transfers - Jerry Mortimore's articles Set '93 to to Feb'94

Is there anywhere online one can view the series of articles written by Jerry Mortimore in Cheval de Fer between Sept 1993 & Feb 1994 about Ariel Transfers?

Footrest spline repair 1959 NH

The LH rider footrest spline on the frame I'm getting ready for painting is a bit bent, the splines flattened & the O.D. is 0.716 inches as compared to 0.739 inches on the RH spline. The bike has been on the road on its side too many times in the long distant past. By the way, I'm assuming LH &a...

Does anyone have any tips for installing the rubber knee pads (current pattern ones available) & alloy embellishers on this model?

Re: ArielMAroon /Deep Claret

I emailed MS Motorcycles (John Chrichlow) who took care of the paint side of Hughie Hancox's expert Triumph restorations to ask if he could oblige with Ariel Maroon. I was expecting no more than the usual "Yes" or, more probably, "No" answer but instead he replied immediately &am...

ArielMAroon /Deep Claret

I have a Maroon 1959 NH to be re-painted & I wonder if I might raise the subject of Ariel Maroon or Dark Claret again. A trawl of the forum brought up the following suggested colour matches :- - Leyland Hunter Maroon B, (Draganfly suggestion) - Ford Garnet - BMC Blackberry - RAL 3007 It’s a pity...

Indeed, that's what it is, Rob. Thank you. I've just tried a 7/16 BSF die on one & it fits. I'm getting old.
