1957 Ariel 500cc VH Red Hunter
Registration no. 849 JTW (see text)
Frame no. APR5227
Engine no. AMB1019
In 1946 the Hunters became the first models to feature Ariel's new telescopic front fork, and the following year could be ordered with optional Anstey Link plunger rear suspension. A new duplex loop frame with swinging-arm rear suspension was adopted for 1954, the 500cc VH gaining an alloy 'head at the same time. Full-width alloy hubs were adopted across the range in 1956, and the Red Hunters continued in this form until production ceased in 1959. Last taxed in December 2000, this Ariel Red Hunter is offered for restoration. There is no registration document with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed. Prospective bidders must satisfy themselves as to the validity of the Vehicle Registration Number prior to bidding.
