Footnotes

  • The following 13 lots are believed to have formed part of the Ariel Works archive, evidence on file suggesting that the items originated with the Sangster
    family.

    Innovator in cycling technology and components, owner of Components Ltd. and later, 'motoring adventurer', Charles 'Chas' Sangster (1872-1935) purchased the Ariel Company in 1902, which then went onto to produce and manufacture motorcycles. After two periods of financial difficulties in 1911 and early 1930s, his son Jack Sangster purchased the Ariel company and resumed production under the name Ariel Motors Ltd.
