Ariel's Arrow Super Sports, often referred to as the Golden Arrow, first hit the road in August 1961 and remained in production until May 1965. Mike O'Rourke had ridden a Herman Meier tuned Arrow to an amazing 7th place in the 1960 Lightweight TT against many much more exotic racing machines, maintaining an average speed of 80 mph, so it certainly had potential. Many have speculated that it could and should have been further developed, and not long afterwards the Japanese proved that there was a very real market for 250cc two stroke twins. This matching numbers example was bought by the lady vendor's late brother in law in November 1994. Virtually nothing is known of its history or mechanical state. It is accompanied by a V5C. Prospective bidders should satisfy themselves as to the motorcycle's completeness and mechanical condition.

£1,500 - 2,000
€1,700 - 2,200
To be sold without reserve

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
