Re: 1954 red hunter parts wanted

I have a slightly rusty exhaust pipe for a ‘54 VH, I also have a silencer which is shiny but rattles like hell because the baffle has dropped.

If you wish to PM me I will happily send photos.

Re: Ariel 3....an idea before its time?

Re: A chat today was amusing

As a younger member of the club (in my mid thirties) I see this as a cycle which will bring about the end of the club and most classic British bikes on the road. 1.People hold onto their bikes for too long, hoping the value will increase as much as possible as they become more of an asset than a bi...

Re: Swinging Arm Powder Coating

My swing arm has very brittle powder coat on it, and a great deal of it has peeled off. Dad’s is still in good condition and he has done more miles than I have. ...

Re: Ariel Square Four tappet adjuster
