1964 Ariel 247cc Leader
Registration no. JHR 213B
Frame no. T33619/B
Engine no. T33619-B
With its enclosed bodywork, leg shields, windscreen, and neatly integrated optional panniers, the Val Page designed Ariel Leader attempted, and largely succeeded in combining the handling benefits of a motorcycle with the protection and convenience of a scooter. It was the first British motorcycle to be fitted with flashing indicators. Ahead of its time in many respects, it surely deserved further development before BSA ceased production in 1965. A matching numbers example, this Leader previously belonged to the lady vendor's late brother in law. It was first registered on its present registration number in October 1988. The odometer displays 20,699 miles and is flanked on one side by a sought after Smiths eight day clock. Virtually nothing is known of its history or mechanical state. It is accompanied by a V5C. Prospective bidders should satisfy themselves as to the motorcycle's completeness and mechanical condition.
