Re: Dating a V Twin Ariel

Hi Andy, thanks for the PM, I'll give you a call when I get home as communications are a bit dire at this end.

Re: Cylinder head welding

Hi Mick, If it's cast iron you need welding try these people: http://www.castironwelding.co.uk/contactinfo. They're in Coalville in Leicestershire. They weld all cast from large industrial marine machinery to bike bits. They did a 1920 BSA side valve blind head for me - the exhaust port had cracked ...

Re: Dating a V Twin Ariel

Hi Andy, Thanks very much for your offer - very good of you. I'm in Suffolk but am happy to travel (almost) anywhere to take some detailed photo's and measurements and get some advice.

Re: Dating a V Twin Ariel

Thanks for your help everyone - looks like the bike is somewhere around 1920 which is great. I didn't realise the 'A' on the engine stood for AKD or that the first frame digit may or may not represent the year of manufacture so that's good to know as well. It's definitely a belt drive as I have the ...

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...
