1957 ARIEL 649CC FH HUNTMASTER (LOT 314)
REGISTRATION NO. YWJ 272
FRAME NO. AP6705
ENGINE NO. CNLF5470
Following Ariel's acquisition by the BSA Group in 1951, an exercise in 'badge engineering' a few years later saw the launch of a new model - the Huntmaster - which deployed the 650cc twin-cylinder engine of the BSA A10 in Ariel's new swinging-arm frame. In Ariel guise the power unit differed only in detail, its origins being disguised beneath a reshaped timing cover, while on the primary drive side Ariel's traditional dry clutch was retained. "High performance combined with remarkable tractability and notable fuel economy: first-class steering and braking" was how Motor Cycle magazine summarised the Huntmaster's virtues in December 1955. The factory claimed a top speed of 90-95mph with fuel consumption of 65-70mpg when cruising at 45mph. Announced in October 1953 as a new-for-1954 model, the Huntmaster disappeared along with the rest of Ariel's four-stroke models in 1959.

Purchased from a local auction house and last taxed for the road until 30th June 2015, this Huntmaster will require re-commissioning before further use and would respond well to detailing (the engine turns over). Offered with a V5C registration Certificate.

£3,000 - 4,000
€3,300 - 4,500

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.
