YC5785 - Another friend's uncle

Postby James Hickman » Tue Dec 01, 2020 2:37 pm

Following my previous post, another friend has sent me a photo of his uncle on an Ariel c 1932. Year and model anyone?
Any chance it is still out there?

Looks like tension spring forks and I can't see a rear stand - 1929?

OHV engine is a 500 I think.

The registration is from Somerset and not on DVLA so the bike may not
have survived - at least with that number.

Living in Somerset, Johnny, I can assure you that Somerset is not in Ireland.....
