1951 Ariel VB600 side valve. I bought this at the beginning of 2021 with a view to restoring it but, in my opinion, it has far too much character to restore. I checked over the mechanicals and replaced the barrel and head (the fins on the originals were very thin and some were broken), I had it re-bored, the head and barrel were skimmed to mate up correctly, the head bolts were drilled, re-tapped and replaced with 3/8" for a better fix and new valve seat inserts were done. The engineering work was done by T&L Engineering at Elstow, all receipts to prove. The original head and barrel together with a complete bottom end and various other spares come with the bike. There is also an Owners Handbook and a tatty C W Waller book of the Ariel. The V5 is in my name and the Registration number is non-transferable. My reason for sale is another project and not enough room!
