Was there any consistency by Ariel in fitting the deep C-section mudguards to specific models. Did the factory perhaps fit those type of mudguards only to the Deluxe models.....I think the VG was a Deluxe.
I like the picture! Look how the father is holding on to his Son and has his cap turned backwards in the best of pre-war Brooklands tradition! They must have had a good laugh when this pic was taken. Thanks Chris for showing it.
Lee We have previously established that singles generally did not have chrome fork seal holders until 1951, (the year the chrome came off the petrol tank?). The front brake plate was chromed from 1950. From period photos and advertising brochures it appears that the twins had chrome fork seal holders in 1950 and the 4s in 1949 David
