Priced at SOLD. Originally registered in Middlesex on the 11th of March 1950, this model was only in production from 1948 until 1951, so is quite a rare version of Ariel's 500cc twin. The last owner purchased this fine old Ariel horse from a another classic bike dealer on the 18th of January 2021 following the death of his wife, sadly he found he just could not manage the bike & so parted with it. Here is what he has said about the Ariel: -
An older restoration but still in nice condition. Owned by the same family for the last 45 years, 4 owners from new with only 9738 miles on the clock which is believed to be genuine. Stored in a heated garage since 1981. She has recently been recommissioned with overhauled magneto and dynamo, new battery, fuel lines and has had a full service.The original buff & green logboooks are present with some old MOT certificates and tax discs. She starts, runs and rides beautifully.
History is good in the form of the original buff logbook & the following green logbook, aswell as various other paperwork. Comes with the latest DVLA V5C registration document, is registered for free road tax under the 'History Vehicle' class & is MOT exempt.
