Hello, despite owning and ridden motorcycles for over 50 years I have never owned Ariel of any sort, until now that is. Bought sight unseen apart from photos from H&H auction.Very brave, or possibly a bit dumb. As it happened the machine is in excellent condition very pleased with it. As delivered it wouldn't start, could barely kick it over, however reading this forum soon identified the problem, sump full of oil. Drained it all out and poured it back into the oil tank, two kicks later and it's running like a Swiss watch, sounding wonderful. Just waiting on the DVLA now, should be on the road soon.
