Ariels radical and iconic two-stroke twin with monocoque chassis and trailing-link front suspension came in the sought-after Super Sports model and that was the one to have in 1964 if you wanted a fast lightweight and learner-legal sports machine. This nicely restored example comes with a nice document file and should require the minimum of recommissioning to return to the road in style. The V5C and VIN plate under the seat say matching numbers but it looks like a replacement engine has been fitted at some time which is not uncommon and certainly of no concern on a machine of this value. All the money has been spent on this bike; just look at the condition; so it offers an absolute bargain opportunity to own one of the best loved two-stroke twins of the period. Truly a trend-setter in so many ways.
This machine is one of a collection of classic motorcycles coming to market some time after the passing of their owner and these pictures have been taken where they were left in the family garage. The mechanical condition has not been assessed but we are advised that they were all running well and used occasionally up to two or three years ago so recommissioning should be relatively straightforward. The bikes are advertised in the condition you see them and sold as seen. If you are interested in any of these machines but not interested in the recommissioning work then we will have the bike(s) assessed in our workshop and will be happy to negotiate a price for the bike “on the road”. Please call to discuss any of these as I appreciate there is less information here than is ideal to make a decision.
