Lovely looking bikes aren't they. First time I've seen one with the centre stand back to front.
cheers

Blimey. I had to look through all the pictures to find that. Looks a bit vulnerable.

Quite like this Huntmaster.
Might contact the vendor in Hexham.
Anyone have any inside information on this bike? Any hidden horrors?
(Except the centre stand on back to front and exposed oil pipes)

thanks David

There are better ones for sale, thusbis a dealer so no build history.
From what we see , put together to sell, what other horrors await the buyer.

Hi Dave
Thanks for your comment.
Interesting to hear.
I think when I'm buying 70s jap bikes I always presume people are trying to pull a fast one - But with Ariels I have a romantic idea that a higher standard prevails. But this is simply that.... a romantic idea.

Would be grateful for your thoughts on any better ones.
I'm in two minds whether to get a 650 or a VH500 instead.
Really hoping to get something so I can go on a club rally of some sort before the Summer is out - If we're allowed of course.
Thanks
David

....Actually this one looks quite fun.

The scoops on the tank look painted rather than polished metal.
But a minor thing. I live in London so anything too pristine usually gets reversed into by an Uber driver.
