I had a very enjoyable time at the annual, came away with lots of spare parts for those never ending Ariel building jobs.
Top of it all was the Hurricane low fly by, first time ever that I heard one of those in real time, although Herman noted that it was not going at full throttle. I really felt like a small boy in a toy store !!
Only the Saterdays tour was a pain, riders that do not want to apply to the 'follow up' system should go riding on their own!
(and thats what they did!!) It made the whole trip a shambles with Arielist going in all directions.
Anyway , as said, it did not deter me from having a very nice time at the rally.
Now for something else. Did anybody ever wanted (or did) build an electric starter onto a Ariel single ?
Would a Norton starter + it's mechanism -with adjustments ofcourse- do ?
Any thoughts on this ?
As the membership in general is getting closer and closer to hip replacements & walking sticks and indeed my right knee is getting 'a bit' fragile I'd like to find out what and if there are any possibilitys.
I have seen a picture from a elec starter made by Alton in France, a first prototype of a elec starter for a Vincent Comet.
