My 1944 350WNG

Postby HenkvanDijk » Fri Dec 15, 2017 5:32 pm

Since 2016 I am busy with the restauration of a WNG, which was imported from Myanmar to the Netherlands in 1993. Since then the bike was stored in a barn. In 2015 a friend of me, bought the bike together with a Matchless 3GL from 1943.
The dismantling of the bike is complete now, so from now on I hope to find the spare parts that I need. In the past time I already finished the restauration of the magdyno and the Burman gearbox.
I am looking in these months for parts for the engine, Girder suspension and frontbrake. So if someone can help me further? Please contact me. :P

Good to hear from you Henk.

There are a few of us here with W/NGs and of course many other Ariels, and shortly you will find that several of our members are in Holland - indeed, our 2018 Annual Rally will be held in Amsterdam.

There are several key suppliers here in the UK, notably our club, Draganfly motorcycles in Suffolk, John Budgen and many others. What are you looking for specifically?
cheers

You need to get in touch with Peter Kemp, who looks after singles spares for us. Are you in the AOMCC? His details are in the magazine.

Here's a link to Drags' Web page for single cylinder engines:

https://www.draganfly.co.uk/index.php/a ... 44-singles

Try here too. There are others...
cheers

Hello Simon,

I am a member of the Dutch Ariel Owners Club. Do I need to be a member of the British Owners Club too? Like to communicate with Peter Kemp.

I did look already on the website of Draganfly.

In my former message I forgot the parts of the frontbrake:
The inner drum is 1 1/8 inch deep. So I am looking for the linings no.4106-32 has to be 7/8 inch wide. With 1/2-inch shoes no.4106 32 to fit on the brake cam no.4115-36 . I also need the return springs no.41110-30; the cam, lever and rod. But the complete anchorplate would also be fantastic.

Regards, Henk.

Hello Henk,

Welcome! and yes, if you like full benefit from the AOMCC you need to become a member.
But most of the talk on this forum goes on in the open area so you can think about it for a while !
W/NG are really nice bikes, ofcourse not for highway use but on twisty roads you can keep up with all of them.

regards, Vincent

Hello Vincent,

Thanks for your answer. About 10 years ago I finished my firrst restauration of a BSA M20, which appeared to be a 600 cc.
I enjoy riding on this bike, but are looking forward to experience riding the WNG. It will take some time, but working on the project is also fun.

Regards, Henk.
