Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

And a few more. Including an article of a year on a OHC Square Four combination. Sounds better than the year with my 600 OHV where my mag's given up the ghost after 2,500 miles!

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Evening Andy! I guess you're right - I wouldn't fancy doing 95mph on the roads of that era. The village I come from only got tarmac roads in about 1950!

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

Re: Sprocket Makers

Thanks for the tip Johnny, I spoke to B&C Express and they were really helpful - and still working which is a bonus! I've sent them my old worn out sprocket and they'll have a new one back to me in a week or so.

Re: Ariel in Motor Cycling 1930/31

And some more from Motor Cycling including an ingenious article about using Mechano to place a horn button on the timing chest of your Colt.
