Description

Here we have my 1958 Ariel square 4 MK2 1000 cc barn find straight forward project . Mainly needs cosmetic restoration plus setting up tuning etc .Been dry stored since the 1980s .Carb stripped and cleaned , engine flushed and new oil , new plugs , new wiring loom . Points cleaned and away it went 2nd kick ! ,previous owner told me his father stripped and refurbished the engine . surprisingly starts very easy but will need tuning, fettling and setting up etc ,some fuel pipe fittings are missing so I filled the float chamber with petrol to start.the engine sounds fine with no unusual rattles or smoke etc, gearbox and clutch working .checked the oil pipes at various points and you can see oil flow in the oil tank so pump working well . Some small seat brackets missing . Generally the cycle parts are all very good with no botched bits, broken parts, rounded off nuts and repairs etc, which backs up the mileage which I believe is original , the seat cover is also original . This bike was supplied new on the 20th Jan 1958 by Pride and Clarke ltd Stockwell road London , which was the largest motorcycle dealer in the UK at the time. I was told it was used as a demonstrator bike until it was sold to its official first owner on 1st Jan 1959 a Joseph Mckane who owned until 8th October 1962 and sold it to David Cowan, Bosham West Sussex who owned for 3 years and sold to motorcycle dealer Comerfords Thames Ditton . The guys dad I bought from purchased it from them in 1965 and father and son owned for 56 years until I bought last year. I have the original buff log book and old V5 plus latest V5 in my name .Engine and frame numbers match the bike and match all log books .Father and son I bought from never got round to applying for the “NEW” V5 when the DVLA went computerised in 1983 and due to this lost the original reg number which was UXE 334 and was issued with NSV 596 which it has today and is transferable. It was black originally but the guys father changed to blue in the 1960s .Chrome on wheels pitted but original rims with good strong spokes etc and will re-chrome with minimal work . Silencers not original but do have originals however rusty .dynamo wiring cover missing . So there you go it's a genuine bike that needs easy straight forward work or use as an oily rag We are in strange times right now so if you want the bike I can store until lockdown is over but would require a £500 deposit. Or if you can collect or send a courier that's up to you .the start price is probably the cheapest running square 4 out there thats not a USA import or botched wreck . I won't take less than the start price . These bikes are commanding a good price and on the rise so a worth while project indeed . Probably looks better in the pictures than in real life. Collection is from Didcot south Oxfordshire.
