Full Description

1926 Ariel Model A

A powerful 550cc Flat Tank machine; lovely running order; few owners; last owner 31 years

This impressive machine has enough sophistication to make riding staightforward and a joy, yet has the looks of an earlier machine.

In very nice order, it has been running sweetly since its arrival onsite and comes with an original leather tool case. The Magneto was rebuilt in 2012 and the bike has done little work since. It comes with its Buff logbook which records owners back to 1934 in Handsworth Birmingham. The V5C shows 5 previous keepers, the Buff logbook perhaps adding one more, but that is over a period of 94 years!

It looks to hauled a chair back in 1934, a job it would be perfectly capable of doing, although it is now running solo as you can see in the photos. It also comes with a photocopy of an owner's manual.
