The Ariel Leader, and its sports derivative, the Arrow, sought to combine the virtues of speed and agility with those of cleanliness and convenience. Launched in 1958 and powered by an all-new 247cc air-cooled two-stroke twin with unit gearbox, the Leader also broke with British tradition in its frame and suspension design, employing a stiff, fabricated-steel beam instead of tubes, and a trailing-link front fork. Announced in 1959, the Arrow dispensed with the Leader's enclosure panels and weather protection while remaining mechanically virtually identical. The Arrow was revised for 1961, gaining squish-band, centre-plug cylinder heads, and a third model - the Arrow Super Sports, universally referred to as the Golden Arrow after its distinctive colour scheme - was added at the same time. This beautiful Arrow Super Sports was restored, including a full engine rebuild, by the Ariel Owners' Club chairman and marque specialist John Ellis, and since acquisition by the current vendor has formed part of his private collection and been used sparingly. Described as in generally good condition, the machine comes with an extensive history file, V5C document and MoT to April 2016.
