My apologies to those interested in this thread over the last months - the house move back in September seems long ago, and I have been kept busy doing some very non motorcycle related things in my spare time of late (but that's okay, because I get to play with bikes all day at work). I eventually sold the bike to a member of the aomcc, who intends to take it to the continent next year, and I'm sure will enjoy the bike.

I was sad to see it go, but glad it has a new owner who will give it some use.

Hi Rob,
I have been following your progress in renovating your KH500 over the last year and having put your heart and soul into such a project it must be sad to see it go.
I have just purchased a 1952 KH 500 myself, although it seems to be in reasonable condition I still intend to give it a total top to bottom overhaul, your knowledge would be greatly appreciated, I am approx. 8 miles north of you in Denby Village.
I look foreward to hearing from you, we have spoken before.

Regards,

John Palmer.

KH update, the machine is now alive and well in Oxford and will return to the road shortly, once DVLA have done their thing that is.

I think this machine has been standing for a while, the battery was completely flat and quite dry ( I have it on charge hoping it might recover, otherwise it will need replacing) and the sump was full of oil. Drained out and it looked more like black treacle than oil, so a change of oil and filter before I try any serious running. But for the moment it will have to wait as I am of to the Great Dorset Steam Fair shortly (not with the Ariel) so it will be September before anything gets done, Although I don't plan to change much, other that move the footrests, handlebars etc around to suit my riding position and give it a good clean.
Will keep you posted as and when.
