Lot 113: Ariel 650cc Model FH Huntmaster

Important Collectors' Motorcars & Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 June 2012)

A BSA Group exercise in 'badge engineering', the Huntmaster deployed the 650cc twin-cylinder engine of the BSA A10 in Ariel's new swinging-arm frame. In Ariel guise the power unit differed only in detail, its origins being disguised beneath a reshaped timing cover, while on the primary drive side Ariel's traditional 'dry' clutch was retained. Produced from 1954, the Huntmaster disappeared along with the rest of Ariel's four-strokes in 1959. This incomplete and partly dismantled example is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot.
