Those wipers were invented when the lanes of rural Britain were littered with horseshoe nails.
And those are great photos, thanks for putting them up here.

From Jeff Smith's Facebook photo albums. Some great pics there.
Good to see he still knows where the throttle is too!

Looks like a tire pump and tools strapped to the frame rail.

Interesting that Ariel is running road-based VH models (with mods) rather then their all-alloy motor off-road/competition machines? Just being released then perhaps.

The HS/HT didn't come out until 56.

The bikes in the photograph must have been the first swinging arm/alloy head machines. Those look like alloy barrels as well.

To my highly untrained eye I would say the cylinders are much darker then the heads in that pic...indicating they are probably black-painted cast iron.

Someone rode this nice Comet to C.O.T.A. for the Moto GP.



And someone else rode this R-E survivor to the Gypsy Bar on 6th. Street.
