Fantastic is also with our Austrian friends. It's a very nice bunch of Ariel enthusiasts. We feel at home there. I look forward to their rallies every year

I was surprised at how quickly it worked.

I discovered the first defect. I'm leaking oil from the primary housing, around the clutch, to the inside of the transmission. Iba som ho vypustil, ale budem musieť zistiť príčinu

I'm glad it's finally running :D :D :D

That sounds so good, Karol! How will the wife get on with the hand gear change? I never liked them myself.

more often we have a problem with the brake on the left side. you also ride other motorcycles and once the brake is on the left and once on the right, it can cause problems in operation. fortunately we are used to the fact that if the motorcycle has a manual gearshift, it also has a brake pedal on the left side

It works well. This is my first veteran, which has four speeds, so I think it will take us easier in pairs

Did that bike come from Denmark? The pillion seat look Danish.

yes he is from Denmark. I have the first documents issued for it and also the preserved history.

if you know local retailers, I took your ID. Maybe it will help you identify

I bought it in the Czech Republic from a motorcycle dealer

I have a spare danish type pilion seat that I do not need anymore. In case anybody is interested. Quite comfortable but I prefer to ride without passenger.

I drove a bit, but it's not good yet. the seal under the engine head sometimes whistles and the clutch malfunctions. I'll have to fix it.

the clutch disengages even if the pressure basket is far enough away. They probably catch the slats against the basket

I disassembled the clutch again and found a fault. it was a damaged basket that caught the slats.
