Czech parts

They make 1"handlebars and the straightpull gashandles for prewar Ariels.
Most other stuff is for Jawa and CZ

Nice looking bits. Anyone happen to know when Ariel started fitting 'Modern' twist grips rather than straight pull/helix?
I've always assumed it was about '33-'34?

When they are refering to short or long version, which one is the correct for a 1929 Model B ?
1929 Model B, 1944 W/NG

Hi Huw,
The "modern" twistgrip came in during '38 or '39 (I think '39) with the last version of girder forks. These had check springs and 3/4" bars that were mounted without the rubber handlebar isolators. I have a '46 VB with this setup.
I think competition VH models had the straight pull throttle a couple of years earlier (mid '30's).
I can measure a '34 twistgrip (this is the same as the '37 version) if anyone needs to know a length. I can't help for earlier than that.

29 Model B would probably have had throttle levers. Only the top of the range sports model would have had a twist grip. Have a look at the catalogues in the Knowledgebase - should state what was `standard'

Thanks Brenton and others
I'll start as Tony says and have a look through the info available for mid '30's bikes.
Cheers
