Well, my neighbour has produced the hinged mudguard bits, but I don't think its Ariel.
The Reg No. 'VSF 316' doesn't find a match on the DVLA website, someone may have a better way of identifying the original bike.
The guard isn't complete but it looks 50s to me. There was a pair of rear suspension units with it, which may or may not have had anything to do with the bike.
Can anyone identify this guard please ??
It appears to have had a sort of rubber strap bolted around the lower rear edge - very curious :
My neighbour says "No reasonable offer refused"
My avatar shows the late Len Rich in 1970 with the bike I now have - a 1958 Ariel VH
