1955 HS

It's the real thing, they have welded an extra rearfootrest to it and some more weldings but not a bad HS, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ariel-HS-Bar ... :rk:2:pf:1

Mmmm

Not so sure - wrong back wheel for the year and look at that back sprocket - dished, so isn't that BSA?
How does the rear chain line up? 19" front wheel, maybe correct for a USA model. That petrol
tank is suspiciously shiny and look at the run of the throttle cable. Not for me.

'55 frame but with all the '56-on crossover rear brake gubbins (as well as the pillion rests)?
Weird!

SG
'55 Huntmaster, '56 VH, ' 51 VH, '80 R100RT, '00 Sprint ST (but all those Ariel parts can only make one running bike...)

They have put the rearforks and hub of 1956-59 in, they welded the leversupport and rearfootrest on the frame that's an easy repair but the numbers are good.
The prise is good aswell compared to the wreck of a month ago.
