Man and sloper come a cropper.

Wali Taylor posted something on Facebook... Anyone know who the poor blighter who has come to grief riding a sloper in Hertfordshire is? Described in the paper as "a 68 year old man, riding his vintage motorcycle..." He's critical in the George Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. 'Spirit of Arie...

For Sale: KH500 twin (late pivoted rear fork type)

Ariel KH (late model) Owned for almost 6 years, a lovely machine to ride, spoilt only by the difficulty in lifting it onto its centre stand at the end of the ride. In the 6000 miles I’ve done on it, it’s had a magneto rebuild, pillion re-padded and re-covered, bores re-honed and a new pistons fitted...

Re: ‘48 500

Hi Dave

Re: Wanted - FH oil delivery pipe big bearing crankshaft

I have Dave, and didn't find it. It doesn't seem to have a part number, and my description in 'search' doesn't find it.

Huntmaster crankshaft oil pipe disaster! HELP!

Does anyone know the real reason why BSA and thereby Ariel fitted an oil delivery pipe up the centre of the big end journal axis on Huntmasters? I have my own theory, which I won't bore you with, and I have heard another theory, but if anyone actually knows please enlighten me. I did not know it exi...

Wanted - FH oil delivery pipe big bearing crankshaft

Hi guys. I'm after the pipe that goes up the middle of the big end journals of an FH or A10 big bearing crank. It's suaged out at the timing side end for interference fit inside the crankshaft, and on the drive side the sludge trap plug has a nose on it to locate and seal the other open end of the p...
