Re: ‘38 Red Hunter on ebay

Yes, the dots are right Nev. It is nice, isn't it.

Re: 1939 Red Hunter

I think all of the Red Hunters in 1939 were single exhaust port.
The twin port heads were used in the deluxe 350 and 500 motors.

Aqua blasting machine. Thanks Vincent

Re: bikes in remote Aus

Hi Dave, I imported my model C from Holland (G'day Paul) with no issues, but this was 2012. There are plenty of fees, including 10% GST. You would need a shipping agent.

Re: Hello all, New Member

Hi TJ, welcome. There are a few Aussies on the forum. I think a couple are from Qld. The AOMCC members website has a lot of useful information for your bike and the club has a spares scheme, dating service, magazine and the like. There is an Australian Ariel club, the Ariel register. Looking forward...

Re: piston problems

Hi David,
That's an impressive number of things to go wrong.
