I couldn't disassemble the screws, I had to drill them, I abraded the damaged areas and reassembled the clutch

I managed to reassemble the primary timing and clutch. I still tighten the seal under my head and start to start

I wanted to tighten the motor head because the compression was leaking. the screws were relatively easy to tighten until one cracked. I was not expecting that.

I loosened all the screws and dropped my head. I noticed that some are narrowed down. they were probably tightened with great force and damaged. If I tightened the screws, they would all break. Fortunately, the broken piece was easy to pull out. I have already ordered new screws from Draganfly, I will have to wait for the package to be delivered.


I'm going to relax by riding another motorcycle

I'm already satisfied. My friend Pavol took me on a trip to forget about engine problems.

a bundle of screws came. Everything fit, the motorcycle is folded. so far it is going well. I will have to go some longer route to eliminate any minor mistakes. however, it is raining today and I have a bad ride in the rain. I'll be more traditional in the workshop and I'll try to mount a rear-view mirror

The original rearview mirror is sold on ebay at prices in excess of my budget. I had to be modest with a copy. It also costs quite a bit of money, but it is beautifully processed

I didn't like the state of the electrical installation on my VB/1934 at all, so today I installed new cabling. I still have to charge the battery and I'll go try it on the road

I asked for historical documents to be allocated for my Ariel. However, our test commissioners have a different opinion on the original machine, so I had to paint the tailpipe in silver and cover the seat with a new leatherette cover. I took this photo for documentary purposes then I returned everything to its original form. Fortunately, the paint was easy to erase and issued documents are valid for up to 5 years. :roll:

I have been a little late in answering. Your bike was first time registrered in Copenhagen on 9/8 1934. During the war the numberplate was in custody at the police from 15/5 1940 to 17/4 1946. From then it was used again until 27/10 1977.
