Well, I've gone and done it again. Yesterday, while on the way to do mother's day duties, I collected a '79 Ariel 3. Or rather a large lump of rust masquerading as an Ariel 3. My god it's a mess! Worse than it looked in the pictures if thats possible
But, hell, it was only 50quid and its not as if I've got too many irons in the fire at the moment -(I'm collecting another bantam in York on the way home from the AGM this weekend as well !)
I've always been intrigued by them. They make me think of the Bond Bug - another creature I lust after- in that they were lurid futuristic, death-traps yhat can't fail to put a smile on your face
I'll post some pics when I wrestle it from the back of the car later. Fortunately spares are available, many from the excellent Mopedland, so I hope to be thrashing it to within an inch of its 30mph top speed for next summer - its bottom of the priority list just now
Anyway pics to follow and I'll use this post as an update.
All the best
