BSA Ariel FH Huntmaster 650cc description

I have a 1954 Ariel FH Huntmaster 650cc for sale from my private collection. The bike only has limited miles on it after a ground up restoration approximately 5 years ago. The bike is in excellent cosmetic and running condition. The engine and gearbox have been completely overhauled. The bike comes with the correct Smiths speedometer, ampere meter, Lucas Altette horn, Burgess Air Cleaner- the bike is original and correct. These bikes are very underrated and are one of the most comfortable Ariel twins ever made. Matching numbers.

In 1954 Ariel Introduced the 650cc Huntmaster equipped with engines based on the BSA parallel twins, the Huntmaster's being an A10 with a reshaped timing cover, Ariel's traditional dry clutch and a Burman gearbox. Accordingly, it featured the A10's cast iron cylinder barrels and head, pushrod-actuated overhead valves and an Amal Monobloc carburetor. The duplex frame was suspended on telescopic front forks and a swinging arm at the rear, and had lugs to enable sidecar fitment on either side. The factory claimed top speed of 90-95mph, with a fuel consumption of 65-70mpg when cruising at 45mph

The bike is registered in Ontario, Canada and comes with a valid ownership under my name. Shipping arrangements can be made and can potentially deliver to US border.

What’s Old Is New Again – Video

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700

There’s something distinctly cool about old British motorcycles. From the wire wheels, the minimal bodywork, and the exposed engines which give off a thunderous bark, I’ve always loved looking at old Triumphs, BSAs and the like from the 60s.  I’ve never owned one though. The reason is simple: old British bikes are needy little maintenance machines notorious for the odd oil leak.

The Fonz Never Really Rode a Motorcycle!

Tue, 02 Jun 2009 00:00:00 -0700

According to the “King of Cool” himself, “The Fonz” (Henry Winkler) never actually rode any motorcycles during the ten year Happy Days television run.  Winkler, never rode a bike in real life either, he has dyslexia, which made it difficult for him to co-ordinate the clutch, throttle and brake.  Instead, the bikes (Harley Davidson’s, Triumph’s, BSA’s were used) were mounted on a piece of wood with wheels to make it look like he was riding, even though I am not shocked, I am a little disappointed… You can watch the interview with Winkler, the famous motorcycle jump “The Fonz” made over 14 trashcans and a bonus “Jump the Shark” video after the jump.
