Post 1916 Ariels have that to, some 1931 Ariels have the footclutch as extra.

Well then, you fellows will have no trouble riding this machine. Larger US bikes were all foot clutch in the 30's with NO backup. They had friction plates at the pedal pivot, you could adjust tension to make the clutch stay where you left it. These things are OK when you get used to them, (which takes a while). You can double declutch (like a truck) for down changing without grating the gears. You can pick good gear changers when you look in the gearbox after a bit of use. Nev
