Ariel VG 500 1932 De Luxe

Postby ladislav.matejka » Mon Jun 26, 2017 4:38 pm

Hello all,

can you check this motorcycle, please? I would like buy it next week. Are all parts original? Are engine number and frame number correct? It is a rare model and there is little information available on the Internet.

Sorry for my english, I am from Czech Republic :D

Engine number : C 1952
Frame number : C 3086

Engine and frame numbers match. It is a 1932 VG. Whether all the parts are correct for the year, I don't know.

I am not home but the number is looking familiar, could it be the ex Graham Berry Ariel again, in that case it's very original and i cann't find wrongs.

Ladislav,
A nice and rare 1932 VG. This 4 valver was built in 1932 only. Just a little hint: The ammeter seems to be a Miller whereas Ariel used the Lucas one. Also the magdyno looks a little more modern. The numbers with the C letters are correct. All in all a nice bike. If you need more detailed information I could check with my 1932 VG. Let me know!
Good luck Klaus

Thank you all for your comments...!! It is a nice motorcycle

Gerhard : Can you upload photo of your VG 32 motorcycle, please? My father has Ariel 557 sv 1928 and he has ammeter Miller too

I don't know whether are mudguards correct. These mudguards has stripe in the middle. Is it correct or more modern?
