Flight of the Arrow

Postby iansoady » Thu Feb 22, 2018 1:34 pm

My Arrow has now gone to a good home (Vic Perrin of this parish) so I no longer have an Ariel.

Hopefully I can still lurk as this is an excellent forum and I did learn quite a lot in my short ownership!

There is no harm in lurking or mooching around,you never know what might turn up to tempt you again,

Do you think you will ever own another Ariel again?

Looks like you have a single and a twin
Trident & Sq4 would be logical :-)

I am now the proud owner of Ian's Arrow. What a gentleman he was to deal with. The bike is in superb condition and full credit should go to Ian for the work that he has put into the restoration.

Many thanks Vic, it was a pleasure to meet you and I'm confident the Arrow has gone to a good home.

Had these two out for a short run this afternoon. It is the first time in over 50 years that I have rode an Arrow and had forgotten how nippy they are !

Well pleased with the bike Ian it ran as sweet as !
