SQUARE DEAL

Ariel four is top of the heap at Alling­ton

Classic Bike (UK) - - AUCTIONS -

Top sell­ing lot at Richard Ed­monds Auc­tions’ April sale was a 1958 1000cc Ariel Square Four MKII. From the last year of Square Four pro­duc­tion, the bike had been owned by the seller for the last 45 years and al­ways kept dry­s­tored. In orig­i­nal con­di­tion, though hav­ing not run for years, the bike was de­scribed as re­quir­ing recom­mis­sion­ing be­fore use and sold for £7000.

The sale also fea­tured a large num­ber of parts and project bikes – mainly lightweights and in­clud­ing sev­eral Tri­umph Tiger Cubs in kit form. Prices ranged from as lit­tle as £90 for the bare bones of a circa 1963 Cub, with ma­jor parts present, dis­man­tled en­gine and no V5, to £1700 for an em­i­nently re­stor­able and largely com­plete 1963 ex­am­ple with an age-re­lated V5C.
