In a slight break from the normal vehicles we offer, now available for sale
is this 1961 Ariel Leader motorcycle.
Unused for approximately 10 years but now recommissioned and riding.
The Ariel Leader uses a 250cc parallel twin 2-stroke engine which endows
it with good performance including a top speed of nearly 70mph. The unusual
"monococque" frame concealed the fuel tank whilst the all enveloping bodywork
disguised the mechanical components.
The bike has been re-wired recently. It has good tyres that would appear to
have been replaced recently too. The paint is reasonable with a few chips here
and there. The bike starts, runs and rides but could benefit from further tinkering.
Overall, an attractive and usable motorcycle that is ready to enjoy.
Please note that whilst we endeavour to describe vehicles as accurately

excess of 57 years old!
