The weather is awesome in Ohio this morning, had errands to run.....

Is there a better way to run errands on a glorious Saturday morning? I don't think so

I'd love a rigid ariel. That's going to be an interesting project.

I bought it with a friend. We bought it of some guy who clams to have 80 tons (yes) in Ariel parts....

2 problems:
- He wants prices like everything is 100%. It's not. Not even close as you can see.
- He can't afford the rent of the storage anymore, he is going to bring it all to the scrappers, rather then selling it for a price everybody could live with (and in his case of).


I really don't understand this guy. We really did pay too much, we purely bought this to save it from being melted. We can't (don't want to) buy more.


The guy also has a square and an HT.

Thanks for the comments; it's a '67 MkIII Spitfire Special. It has a MAP oil filter and a few other modern things like electronic ignition, hi-tech coils and a solid state rec/reg to keep it going.



The pic is after its first ride last week, but it's now in bits again chasing a few minor problems. I'm waiting on some new pilot jets and the oil pump or non-return valve is playing up as it is siphoning. Runs very smoothly for an old Brit twin.

M20 on Mulholland

I took a ride on Mulholland Hwy here in LA back in June, on my M20. There's a guy who photographs bikes there just above the Rock Store. I checked his site on the date of that ride, and here it was:

MIne was a 1972 Lightning, two Amal carbs, different tank and front drum brake: the unic problem was the crankshaft broken because of the oil...
BUT an unforgettable way to go...
