Lot 364: 1950 Ariel 346cc NG
By 1930 the engine of Arielís Val Page-designed single-cylinder range had gained a rear-mounted magneto and its distinctive timing cover, and this basic design - frequently revised - would last well into the post-war era. For the 1936 season the Standard models were dropped and two new overhead-valve De Luxe models introduced: the 250cc LG and 350cc NG, complementing the sporting Red Hunters. The 350cc NG produced 13bhp at 5,000rpm and, in common with the rest of the range, received a four-speed foot-change Burman gearbox for 1937 and a telescopic front fork in 1947. Offered for restoration, this NG comes with expired MoT (1976), old-style continuation logbook and Department of Transport letter linking the registration mark ĎGCY 709í to the machine.
