Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Thanks everyone. It's good fun going through the old volumes but I keep getting waylaid by interesting articles. Many many years ago I heard of an old Ariel Leader in a garage, tracked down the owner and bought it for the princely sum of £42. It had all the extras and all I did was hoover the fuel t...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Thanks Johnny, That article took me back to the time I rode a beaten up old Triumph through Europe and it broke down. It took me forever to get home again! A departure today as we go forward in time to the last six months of 1962 when Ariel were producing the two strokes. There was some interesting ...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Today we go to the second half of 1936 with 'The Motor Cycle'. Not many Ariel entries in the index but I think it only lists articles specific to Ariels as opposed to its competitor 'Motorcycling' which lists every time Ariels are mentioned and has a separate illustrations index. Today's scans are o...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Thanks Johnny, glad to know they're appreciated. Today's articles include a few lines about Ariels in Italy and a bit showing an Ariel Sloper....

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

A bit late today, the good weather waylaid me a bit! Today's pages have the 1933 Olympia show reports and a lot of interest in the new fangled Ariel rubber handlebar mounts and how they provide protection from vibration. I guess the test riders hadn't worn them out to such an extent that the handleb...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Sorry about not posting yesterday - I was waylaid by the arrival of a chainguard I'd had made for the OG 250 and then one thing led to another as it does and soon the whole day had passed in the garage... Johnny: the paraffin reminds me of when I restored a 1914 New Hudson two stroke which literally...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Thanks Johnny and likewise I hope you're keeping well in these bizarre times. Today's offering is a mixture. I've delved into the July to December volume of The Motor Cycle and also the 1907 volume of the same. It's interesting that, as Adrie pointed out 'The Motor Cycle' has very few articles or ev...

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Thanks Johnny, I'm glad you're enjoying them as much as I do. Today's bring us to the end of this particular volume and includes an article on a scramble won by a rider in a 250 Ariel! I've been reading through a volume from 1907. Not many mentions of Ariels but I'll post what I've found tomorrow an...
