    Every cloud even very black ones as they say, so on lock down I decided to drag
    my old Ariel out of the garage, it as been there 2 or 3 years and had been standing
    in a shed for 30 odd years before I got it. After a good few hours it runs everything
    works inc the charging system, it's a bit on the noise'y side but starts first kick, oil
    returning to the tank, next step is sort the paperwork and give it a test flight.

    It is a problem easily corrected maybe or maybe not. I often under estimate human lassitude.

    This thread and numerous others of it's type turn into a contest to guess the year and model, manufacturie of the motorcycle. We want to stump the masses and present a puzzle nobody else can decipher.

    I would love to have the pics labeled with year and model if the poster knows. Of course some of the bikes aren't known, OK. But I pass over the pics too fast because I don't know what they are. Once every 10 or 20 bikes we get some of the story when the astute among us chime in. Often times tho that info is lost because the pic was posted 2 pages back.

    I guess we are not in the business of providing a catalog for future generations and nobody here gets paid. So carry on. And enjoy.

    Question for U.S old brit enthusiasts, did AJS export a road AJS model 18S with
    a all aloy competition motor to the U.S.A in 1954 or any year come to that? I
    don't mean the CS with the off road looks but the road model,
