The Ariel Red Hunter was the name used for a range of Ariel single-cylinder motorcycles. The engines were all run for two hours on a test bench 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.
The Ariel Red Hunter was already such an advance machine in its day that even before post-war changes could be made, they were still very capable machines. However, one welcome improvement was the telescopic front forks, which replaced the pre-war girder forks, for a huge improvement in both handling and ride.
This Motorcycle is in running condition restored.
