Ariel moving day.

Postby Leejm » Fri Jan 04, 2019 12:04 pm

Life for me has been difficult of late. So I'm moving my ariels to my mother's house as I need the space at home
Hopefully I will get to finish the vha at some point. Its very close to finishing but I have more important things to think about. So here are some photos I took before they go.

Fantastic work on both bikes Lee, they have clearly been a labour of love the standard of finish is first class. I really hope things improve at home.
Best Wishes

Those are two most beautiful machines. When I get to the stage of starting the restoration of my KHA I shall be in touch to pick your brains after the superb job you have done on the VHA.

I hope things sort themselves out for you.
