1953 HT ?

Postby adrie.degraaff » Sat Jan 13, 2018 6:58 am

There should be a law against wrong advertising, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ariel-HT500- ... Sw~T9aWKAq

Could this be a new frame with an old number stamping? or where his glasses blurred when reading the V5?

Adrie can you clarify further please ? From the Draganfly VIN information the 1954 model HT was available in both rigid and swinging arm frame format and with the model year running from September of the previous year then it is possible for this machine to be registered in 1953 or have I missed something ? Pictures are too small for me to read any frame or engine numbers.
Regards,
Keith.

I see what the problem is, that's a standard heavy SA road frame.
