1942 W/NG

Postby Michael.Brown » Fri Jan 19, 2018 2:45 pm

Hi all,

Picked up my new bike yesterday after an extremely wet test ride. Love it. At some point it has been civilianised but I am going to return it to military spec paint finish in due course.

I live in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire Dave.

I have had several Ariels over the years, 2 1960 Leaders, 2 huntmasters 1953 and 1958, 1957 NH350 and a 1930 Model B. Have a 1960 Leader and a 2011 Triumph Bonneville SE and now the 1942 W/NG.

Hi Dave,

I will get along and see them at some point. Was a member of the Glos branch many years ago in the late 90's.

The horn should be mounted at the front. I have new repro fittings for that. (2 pieces) The tapered handlebars are a work of art. Is the "field stand" fitting still on the frame? Nev.

Hi Nev,
Unfortunately the field stand top lug is missing but the bottom one is there. I know the horn should be mounted in front of the engine so will move that. May take you up on the brackets though.
