Mudguard section on early 30's ariels.

Folks is a non ribbed rounded section guard ever fitted to any Ariels of the 32 on period? Certainly the alloy guards when appropriate are but I've seen a few images that indicate black guards of that section also with standard looking stays. Nev

How much also depends on the skirt design, the alloy it's made from, whether it's been sleeved and if you pull a chair. I was as guilty as anyone but I've learned ...

Re: died and woke up in Ariel heaven!

At least they aren't in chook sheds or in pieces in boxes rusting. When you get a bike, the easy part is pulling it to pieces. After it's gone through a few hands you really have a challenge with what's left. Nev
