1959 Ariel 650 Huntmaster
Taken off the road in 1991 when the mag started acting up, the mag was reconditioned, the tank, mudguards and sidecar were repainted, wheels rebuilt, new shockers, exhaust, seat, wiring loom, levers, but never put back together. I have the original old seat and new one, old rusty exhaust, and new 2 into 1.
I have refitted the mag and had the engine running, it sounds good, but the carb needs stripped and cleaned, it needs a timing cover gasket and rocker cover gaskets replaced and possibly others.
The bad points,
The chrome rear wheel rim has started to rust
The tyres are cracked
The chrome on the handlebars is not great
Various nuts and bolts are missing
An easy project that could be back on the road after a few days work
Located in Kilmarnock, just south of Glasgow, Scotland
