    I don't care that someone built that abortion in the 70's probably under the influence of drugs they really need to be tracked down and punished

    Too late - I've seen the Ad .

    With my Ariel Owners' Club (and ex-Square Four Owner) hat on . . . There is the making of a good restoration there. The frame and oil tank are later than the motor (as it says) but the running gear is there. A set of Ariel forks, a wheel and a tank (good luck finding one of those that wasn't made in India) and the rest is detail.

    When you see what a fully restored 'Square' will fetch these days the price isn't unrealistic.

    If I didn't have four restoration projects on the go already . . . . .

    Peter,

    I'm around most days. The 'restorations' are moving slowly, I had a crate of bits powder coated recently and other bits are being prepared .

    I now have an up-market TIG Welder .

    I may get the Ariel 'VH' tank repaired once I've had some practice, its a different technique to the MIG!

    The Beemers are going for MOT in a few days time so attention is on them (just ordered a front tyre for the '100').

    Give me a call and drop in, we seem to have a good collection of biscuits .

    Bob.

    Ooooo, Nice.

    There are some lovely Swing-Arm Square Fours in the Ariel Owners' Club. Some have Featherbed frames but most use extended Huntmaster frames or similar. They look so natural I walk past them and then think "Hang on a minute . . . " .

    When I had a Square Four I had a plan to make a Swing Arm version, but life got in the way (I moved from Somerset to Scotland and had to sell all the bikes ).
