Lovely bike. In my view, Val Page's NH/VH engine was the best English single ever made.
They had a swing-arm Mk3 prototype running about towards the end when BSA pulled the plug on Ariel 4 strokes.
They really should have done that 5 years earlier with the mk2 however.
IMHO Probably the most handsome Triumph ever made.
I must agree with you but maybe the decision makers at Ariel were thinking that most Squariel buyers were sidecar riders.Back then Plunger frames were rightly or wrongly considered the best suspension for Sidecar rigs.
The concept was taken further again in later years by the Heeley brothers, with an Egli-type frame. A nice looking ride IMHO.
Mid Week club Ride.
That would certainly fix the handling. Looks great.
