Black Ariel Saddles

Postby simon.holyfield » Sat Aug 08, 2020 11:28 pm

Esoteric question warning!

I've seen a couple of references to Model B Ariels being fitted with better quality saddles than Model As. Does anyone know what this refers to?
cheers

Greetings Simon,I have found a few makes of saddle fitted to black Ariels if they were original or not I am not sure, They were Lycette of course and Leatheries. These seem to be the common ones, the other was Leckie,as to the A models, these were the economy version.and every thing was to a budget,as to fitting a Sturmey box that has always amazed me, its a far nicer box than the Burman. Of course you could specify what you wanted as extras when buying new. good luck with it.
