Dating a V Twin Ariel

I'm not sure if I should ask this question in this section or the 'A Bad Thing Happened to my Ariel' section. That's because the remnants of an old V twin Ariel I've recently bought has had just about every imaginable horror inflicted on it possible: the frame's been cut and welded, nearly every tub...

1939 Ariel OG/OH 250 chaincases

Has anyone got an inner and outer chaincase for a 1939 Ariel OG/OH 250 for sale or swap? These were unique to this engine so are a bit thin on the ground. I've uploaded a photo of a set on a bike which hopefully will come out if I've pressed the right buttons. I'm after a rear mudguard and toolbox f...

Re: Exhausts

I bought a pair of exhausts with the balance pipe for a Laverda SF750 from feked and they fitted OK after a bit of fettling. They look good and work well and I suspect are the same as the ones sold by a well known Laverda dealer where a friend got some from - they were exactly the same as mine but m...

Re: top prices or what

I'm planning on selling my 1939 Square Four 600 OHV and 1933 Ariel 600 VA projects. I will probably stick them on e-bay with starting prices of £500 each as I don't know what they're worth these days. I'm selling because I have too many projects and too little time to get them done and also to pay f...

Congratulations Brenton, a well deserved award. I'm working away so was unable to attend the AGM which is a pity because I would have liked to have shown my appreciation through my vote. However it looks as if it wasn't needed. I've recently been fortunate to have benefited from Brenton's help mysel...

Re: Old tank sealer remover

I also used Tank Care Products of Norwich and found them to be very helpful with advice on how to remove and replace the old sealant. The ethanol had turned the Pet-Seal in my tank into a gloopy white sludge which constantly blocked the carb. Their remover and ethanol resistant tank sealer were exce...

Re: Trade Hartley Alloy Barrel for WNG CP Box

Thanks for the information folks. The Trials and competition theories makes sense as this box came with a load of spares when I bought two 1939 Ariel 250s - one OG and one OH. The OH was a Hartley engined trials machine last used in the late 40s/early 50s and the OG was mid way through a conversion ...

Re: Trade Hartley Alloy Barrel for WNG CP Box

Hi Wade, I'm not sure if the box I have is for a W/NG but I believe it's from a WD machine. Whether it was mounted on an Ariel or Matchless I don't know. The number stamped into the top is: X1 (could be XI) CPBL 35593. I've posted a photo of it and I'm sure someone who knows more than I do will be a...

Re: Oil Pressure Gauge onto a WNG

The 1939/40 models OG and OH 250s had a hole in the centre of the fuel tank for an oil gauge. I think these tanks are the same size and have the same mounting points as a W/NG (but may be wrong). They are hard to come by as only a few hundred were made before the war came and the models were dropped...

Girder Fork Overhaul

I recently collected two sets of girder forks which I’d sent to Paul MacDougall in Marford near Wrexham for overhaul. One set was from a 1910 Humber and the other from a 1914 New Hudson (sorry no Ariels this time!). They were completed in a couple of weeks, new spindles were made out of the correct ...
