I bought this one almost 50 years ago !

Disassembled it about 25 years ago to restore it, rebuilt the engine
and then a lot of life got in the way and its still apart !

At least yours is complete! Mine started out as a bunch of mismatched parts covering about 8 years of production. Got it all put together about 25 years ago and used it as a commuter hack. But right now the significant other has it piled high with her horse tack so it hasn't been out in a couple years. You may have spurred me on to moving the horse blankets and saddles off of it and riding it!

What is preventing you from getting it all together? Need any help or suggestions? One good source of information and parts (used, NOS, pattern, rebuilt, custom aftermarket upgraded parts, you name it) is Draganfly Motorcycles in England ( www.draganfly.co.uk ). They are very easy to work with and very friendly, and their pricing is even reasonable.

You are quite lucky to have this Ariel. Many have been modified over the years. I've been looking for a square 4 for many years to replace the one I sold in my youth.
