Rare Parts Locally Made:

W&P Barrels. Barry Deeth has commissioned a pattern for casting Ariel veteran barrels . Anyone who needs a new barrel for a veteran should contact Barry on (07) 32661548 or send the Secretary an email and he will pass on details.

Bronze Rocker Box - Cast-Iron Square 4.. A new pattern has been made and 20 new boxes were cast cast in nickel bronze, machines and all have been sold. For a new production run, a quantity of 15 is needed for casting to go ahead (click here to see picture of bronze rocker box). Cost/box for second run is likely to be between $600 and $750, depending on numbers and new machining costs. Currently, I have 10 and perhaps 12 expressions of interest. For more details, call Col on (02) 62420495 or e-mail the Secretary.



VALE: George Shores (Cairns QLD) and Steve Vidler (Nowra NSW) both passed away in late March after battles with cancer. Click on thumbnail pictures to see George and Steve astride their Ariel Square 4 bikes. Sad to also report that foundation member Alan Woodbridge (Member (No 3) passed away on 8 April at the age of 82. Two other long serving members of the AAR, Bob Frankham and Barry Foster, have also passed away recently.

AAR National Rally - entry forms for the annual rally are normally provided with the Spring edition of the Club's magazine, but can also be downloaded from the Rally Home Page (access via the Annual Rally menu key in the main menu), once the rally sub-committee has released the form (usually this occurs in October each year).

If you have any spare Ariel motorcycle parts, you may be able to help A.A.R. members keeping Ariels on the road. Click the 'Wanted' list on the 'Advertisements' page to see what parts A.A.R. members need help in obtaining.
