The Ariel marque was sold to BSA in 1951 and at that point, Ariel's 'twin' models were re-designed to use the BSA range of engines. The duplex frame and re-styled A.10 engine gave the 'Huntmaster' good handling and an over-90mph top speed. All Ariel four-strokes were discontinued in 1959, making them comparatively rare today. This superb example has been newly restored, both mechanically and cosmetically, by the Midland's finest Ariel restorer and is complete with MOT, V5C and the original RF.60 log-book. Ready to go, subject to the usual checks, and is described by the vendor as being close to immaculate.
