1966 Ariel Arrow and Bateson 5320 Trailer



1966 Ariel Arrow and Bateson 5320 Trailer

The vendor has kindly supplied the following: 

Ariel Arrow

  • The Ariel was purchased by the vendor in October 2011 with nil recorded miles
  • The first 3 owners did a total of just over 25,000 miles in 23 years
  • Owner number 4 did nil miles, storing the bike in bits for 20 years
  • The bike was sold to a dealer who assembled it, and sold it to owner number 5 who only did 100 miles and exchanged it with a dealer who zeroed the mileage
  • The bike has undergone a total nut and bolt restoration with all the work, except wheel building and chrome plating done by the vendor
  • All parts blasted, etched, primered and top coated using hand held spray cans
  • Many missing and damaged parts made by hand
  • Only 844 of the 200cc Arrows were produced to enable learners to obtain cheaper insurance - many promptly bored out to 250cc without informing their insurers
  • The Ariel is still 200cc with a set of original unused Ariel pistons in reserve if needed

Bateson Trailer

  • Bateson model 5320 Platform Trailer with Spare wheel and carrier
  • Vendor purchased the trailer from new, all the paperwork and keys are available in the office
