done quite a bit of fettling to the old gal, POR 15 in the tank, rebuilt the Ewarts tap with new corks from Thornbt, amc chap who advertises on t'bay, bought two packets as I lost the first on the Sittingbourne weekend,
or so I thought, when the second arrived I found the originals!
, never mind, can a chap have to many corks?, dismantled the carb and put it through my sonic cleaner, thats better, made a slightly longer brake lever for the front give a tad more pressure, I think, sorted the saddle so it stays put and retained the cover with small ba nuts/bolts disconnected the mercury activated stop light switch, gonna ask the p/o if he also makes bombs! so at this present moment she seems to be pretty good.
She wants to be as a week tomorrow,10th inst, my 'lil chum and I, together with Tony Page and Ian Kerr who some of you may know through their writings for bike comics, are owf to Latvia for the rally organised by Juris Rambus, my chum is taking his 1934 BSA sloper, an ex Kent Constabulary machine and I of course the W/NG. An interesting coincidence about the BSA is that both 'lil chum and I were emplyed for the duration by KCC.
Will let you know if any other Ariels turn up, kind regards
