Re: Ariel identification and hi from a new menbrr

Hello Carl. Your bike started life as a 650cc twin Huntmaster! It was sold by a London dealer. The bike your engine came from went to a dealer in Worcester. Given that a great deal of change has taken place with the machine, you might like to check that there is a head stud between the rocker boxes ...

Re: Ariel identification and hi from a new menbrr

Hello Carl and welcome to the club. I recognise the bike which used to appear at AOMCC rallies in the 70s and 80s. Your engine and frame numbers don't match but the engine is one of the last VHs built, the final number being CAMB 1911. A lot of people preferred the old fashioned headlamp to the cowl...

Re: WE furbishment

The paint I have used for some time now is Plasti Kote spray black from B & Q and such places. It gives a good gloss finish and will stay that way on the cylinder for several years. It does tend to thin out on the head after a time but the quick solution is to spray some into a cup then paint it...

Re: Devon Rim / Central Wheel

I have used Devon for a long time as their rims are better than any others I have met. On my order for my rigid / girder Square four they sent the wrong spokes so I pointed out the error and asked for the correct ones. Eventually they sent the correct ones for the rear wheel but refused completely (...

Re: She Is Going To Need New Stockings

DOB 903 is a Birmingham registration issued between March and April 1937, which dates the bike for us. Clearly, some maintenance has been applied in the mudguard department.

Re: Calling All Mk1 Owners

Simon,

On a MK I Square the right hand pipe should be straight. The left hand pipe should have a 1 1/8" offset in it. On a cast iron 4G, the right hand pipe has a 1 3/8" offset while the left hand pipe has a 1 1/8" offset.
