NH (Red Hunter)


347cc ohv single || 365lb || 70mpg || 75mph || 1945-58

A handsome working single, the Red Hunter is a simple, straightfo­rward machine with few virtues or vices. The early bikes had Ariel’s unusual Anstey-link plunger suspension, which has its own challenges. The excellent swinging arm frame handles rather better. The single engines are all developmen­ts of a prewar design. Ariels were, like the AMC models, attractive to more mature riders and of a higher quality, and built to a higher standard than most.

Prices: low £2500 || high £5000
