Hello Roderick, As far as I think I know: the solid ones where used on the enclosed types and the 'open' sprockets on the more sporting models , like the HS MkIII and the FH Cyclone, both America export models. These models only have a upper chainguard like the swingarm Ariels pre FERC. I have seen ...

Re: 'The SpAriel'

Not much SpAriel work lately, all attention is going into getting my Prima Donna Featherbed a electric boot. Har, Har, Har, well...,it's a starter from a American motorcycle, the name eludes me right now..... The starter ring gear fitted almost without modification (almost...) behind the Steve Maney...

One thing at the time mate, most of us are male.

Re: Re-toothing 1956-on rear wheel sprocket

A few pictures that show the FWH sprocket with a detachable sprocket ring. To get the sprocket run true to the gearbox sprocket you have to turn down a portion of the surface where the (old) inner part of the FWH sprocket meets the alloy hub. Otherwise there is not enough material on the rim for mak...

Hello Roderick, This can be done. The best way -in my view- would be to machine the old sprocket down and incorporation a flange on it so you can mount a sprocket ring from a earlier type hub. From then on you can always change sprockets, welding a new sprocket on is also possible but will have you ...

Ah yes, I forgot to react on the rear brake question , rod versus cable. I keep on forgetting which one was the blame, but one of these set ups was making the rear wheel brake lock up (self servo effect) while braking and hitting a pot hole at the same time. (or heavy braking while having some weigh...

Hello folks, with regard to the side stand, I think David gives a good clue to what the angle should be, and the best way to find out is to have the bike up on it's feet and check. A VHA has a 20" front wheel, so keep that in mind when you perhaps have a 19" front wheel as degree of lean i...
