For Sale: 1955 Ariel Red Hunter VH/HS 500 Single. This a very unusual Red Hunter and if you are a fan of Jeff Smith. Dave Bickers. as their signatures appear on the tank. or the ISDT (International Six Days Trial). It would be a great addition to a collection or just an outstandingly great bike to own and ride. as I have. This Red Hunter was restored in England by Andy Tiernan to the 1955 ISDT specs in which it was supposed to enter. But for reasons unknown it didn't. This Ariel came from the factory with the alloy HS engine. I have a certificate of authenticity from the factory records supplied by the Ariel Club of England

This racing Red Hunter is equipped with a host of unique features that you just don’t see anymore. Air compressor bottle (for fixing flats). front mudguard nail catcher. ISDT head inspection tag. extra cables (clutch. brake. throttle) laces next to the operating ones and an original tank bag. racing air filter and more. I added a SRM electronic ignition that fits inside the original magneto housing. I also added LED bulbs to headlight and rear stop light.

This Red Hunter is a ball to ride. Starts first kick and runs unbelievably strong. Just installed new shocks so the bike rides better than you can imagine. Everything works. Chrome is perfect and the paint is in good condition.
