Ariel Square Four
Two owners from new, both from our home town of Fleet in Hampshire, the first from first registration on 6th September 1952 and the last from 22nd September 1980. So it is a matching numbers machine for sure and on the original registration number, what a find this is. Indeed, it is presented in “Garage Find” condition having been in storage unused for a few years and you can see it has suffered a little cosmetically. This kind of provenance does not deteriorate however and we think the new owner will enjoy returning this fine machine to the road and hopefully to its former glory with some sympathetic recommissioning. Frame number is SV1210 and the engine number TM1253, you can see the registration number and condition clearly from the pictures or come and see it here by appointment.
This machine is one of a cherished collection of motorcycles owned, fettled and ridden by a local gentleman, sadly now departed. I personally rode with him on classic runs and always admired his machines and the man himself, so proud to have the privilege of finding new homes for his classic bikes. In this case the bike is offered for sale as seen from storage but it could be recommissioned by Classic Bike Workshop for the new owner and if this is how you would like to buy it then please get in touch and ask for a quote which will depend on the extent of work specified.
