Re: Going overseas this year

That would be a cool thing to own. Looks like it has been restored as opposed to emerging from a Dutch garage having been squirrelled away after market garden.

Re: Tyres for '57 NH

Julian, I have a road rider 90/90x19 on the front and a 100/90x19 on the rear, on a ‘57 VH with fully enclosed chainguard, fit is fine and that is what I would recommend. You are correct in thinking 100= 100mm (4”) and the second number is the percentage of the width as height. So in the case of a 1...

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2020

Wow, Rob, hope you didn't get to unwell. I've just had a negative with one of those 30 minute tests. Self isolation wouldn't be much fun without a shed, we are fortunate to have them. I've finished making the ends. With the tool pocket on one side and some velcro sewn onto the other. Handy for maki...

Be careful not to do too much too quickly Steve.

I tested positive at the beginning of November and decided to spend my time making a wiring harness for the KH. I bought some cotton braided cable etc. It only took me an afternoon!

Re: Taper or Ball bearings in the headstock

I looked in to this earlier in the year - the BSA races will not fit an Ariel frame, they are about 4mm too deep. Your only option for taper roller bearings is Draganfly, as they are made especially for the task.

Re: RAISED HANDLEBARS

We encountered exactly this problem in my old job, we ended up making a jig and knurling the bars ourselves.

Re: Work bench / table

If money and space are no object, in a professional environment I use a probike electro-hydraulic lift. They are excellent, and I cannot find fault with them. Aside from them costing around £1800. At home I have a very good lift, the backbone of which being a trolley jack. Dad kindly donated this to...
