  1958 Ariel VH 500

 

Offered for your vintage riding pleasure in the genera of classic British singles is this Ariel. The bike was sold new in Ft. Collins Colorado and spent its entire life in the state. Only two owners before we obtained it.

The former owner owned it since 1976. He operated an independent motorcycle shop until his retirement.  About 6 years ago he went thru the motor completely. For years this was his ride to and from work and used to explore the back roads in the mountains west of his city on Sundays. It is not stock as he modified it to suit his needs.

According to him the motor renovation included a new piston. valves and guides. A rod kit along with new pinion and sprocket shaft bearings were also installed at that time. It then received sparse usage after this work occurred.   Alas. like a lot of us who have got a few years on us he found kick starting a large single wasn?€™t the fun it once was.

It has new alloy fenders front and rear. The seat is a Bates style scrambler seat. The rubber is Dunlop K 70 universals.  The frame isn?€™t modified as near as I can tell and it has a head light. no tail light.

The bike has a clear Colorado title. It starts with a bit of effort and has tremendous compression.   I can generally get it going in 5-6 kicks on a warm day. It could use some general cleaning up and probably would respond to some tuning to make it an easier starter.

There are no other parts. What you see in the pictured is what is for sale. It is being sold as is and no warranty is offered as it is a 56 year old motorcycle.
