Ariel Red Hunter from 1940
It has old restoration with good general condition and work.
The Ariel Red Hunter was the name used for a range of Ariel single-cylinder motorcycles. They were designed by the firm’s chief designer Val Page in 1932 around an overhead-valve single-cylinder engine that he had developed six years before.
Originally a “sports” version of the Ariel 500, 250 and 350cc versions were developed.
All Red Hunters had a distinctive dark red petrol and oil tanks. The engines were all run for two hours to maintain Ariel’s record of reliability and quality control.
The Red Hunter was a success and formed the backbone of the company, and made Ariel able to purchase Triumph.
