Black Ariels, 1926-1930, by Dave Barkshire Cost inc. p&p: UK £38. Europe £46. Rest of World £51


SPECIAL OFFER , COLLECT AT THE ANNUAL for £30

THE AOMCC has had a further 150 copies of this high quality book printed. The first two editions had runaway sales and secondhand editions are fetching a heavy premium. This edition has 228 pages,16 more than the second edition. Dave Barkshire has long been an enthusiast of old Ariels: he is a slightly eccentric follower specifically of Black Ariels built by the Selly Oak factory between 1926 and 1930. Dave takes us through their roots, their production, their social, mechanical and industrial contexts, and he provides glorious illustration after glorious illustration. We share a delightful gaze back into the days of the black Ariel, from the bikes themselves, which look just as good in full modern colour as they do in atmospheric monochrome, to shots of flappers watching at the Raise Hill section of the 1927 Travers Trial. Everything you could ever want to know about those faroff days is paraded before you in these 202 high-quality pages, all of it bearing some relationship to the bikes which are the excuse for the book. Some of the full-page colour reproductions of factory adverts are so gorgeous you could lose half a lifetime just gazing at them. There are plenty of words to accompany the illustrations. Dave explains the Ariel company’s production year and numbering system, goes into motor cycle archaeology and production figures, gives a year-by-year account of the Black Ariel era, looks at the descendants of the breed (VB and Red Hunter), considers traffic accidents in 1926, the Burman Q gearbox, acetylene lamps, ignition timing plus a host of other interesting topics, and finally packs in a pile of handy information for current-day owners (or those considering a purchase) in the appendices. (Abridged from the first edition review by RealClassic editor Frank Westworth)

I, for one, greatly appreciate the effort you put into writing this book. Aside from the wealth of fascinating information about the history of these machines, the technical information in it was very helpful when I rebuilt my 1928 Ariel.
