Hello everybody. It is fine that You will see my pictures. I do not know English very well. Therefore, it may be some comments or answers seem strange. I'm trying to learn more. Thank you for your understanding.

James from Sheerness, United Kingdom

Ah yes - 500ccc single? About 1950? I like the matching helmet. I am not sure about the mudguards - I thought they were steel and either maroon and chrome or maroon and gold. The Ariel had a sound all of its own.

@James: Hi James. The single sounds are really jotai class of their own. Well saddle I have ever heard of called the elephant's ear. I'm not sure of the components, which you mentioned, because I dont very well know those bikes. As I recall, that said 500 ccm Ariel's hard to iron. When I was young man, I was Jawa-men. Dark was that time.
