I'm listing this machine for a long-time customer and good friend.

English country cruiser capable of 100mph. The current owner is the fifth (first not named David) in a line that traces this 52 Ariel Square 4 Mk I?€™s origin to New Jersey; where it was purchased new in 1952.

The most recent previous owner bought the bike while on a trip in N. Y. State in 1996. After the purchase he had a full restoration performed prior to displaying in his collection.

Upon receiving the machine. the current owner kicked it over twice and it started right up and ran nicely. He rode it around his neighborhood for an hour. and then carefully decommissioned the Ariel for display in his collection.  

The odometer shows 56. 18 km or 35. 05 miles.   The current owner has done a fair bit of detail work on the machine since acquiring it - much polishing. inspecting. cleaning and servicing inside external cases etc. He removed and cleaned the oil tank & lines and installed a rebuilt exchange oil pump from Dragonfly.

The frame is refinished but not powder coated and makes it look very authentic. The tins are all superb in that they are original but refinished beautifully and correctly. Chrome is all perfect.

All the of the wiring was redone correctly and everything works. Even the tiny light in the speedo and the brake light. (all the lights work in other words)  The bike includes the original ignition key and the (optional?) jiffy side stand.

The owner is in possession of a dating certificate with an extract from the Ariel Works Ltd. despatch record books confirming that all of the major components on the machine are original. With the exception of perhaps the rims. tires. spokes and buddy pad this bike has all of its original pieces. nicely and carefully restored.

Also included in the sale are the original owner?€™s manual signed by the first two owners and a copy of the 1970 NY State vehicle registration bearing the name and signature of the second owner who purchased the bike from his friend and original owner in 1957.

This machine has been extremely well cared for and is in exceptional condition - as evidenced in the hi-resolution images on my Flickr Album.   To view the full-sized images on Flickr. click on the  icon on the lower right of any image page and you'll be able to download or view all sizes.
