1938 SSDT

Postby simon.holyfield » Thu May 17, 2018 4:28 pm


I’m writing an article for Cheval on the W/NG, and I’d like to explore the links between the 1938 SSDT bike and the W/NG.

Does this bike, ridden by Fred Povey, still exist? I know of course that the SSDT bike gave the W/NG its longer forks, bent frame tubes and additional ground clearance since this is all part of Ariel folk lore but what else do we know about it, technically? Are there pictures?

'58 Huntmaster,
