    Hi, I’ve got a trike under restoration and need info regarding frame sticker!! I have a company replicating some stickers but I can’t make out the date stamp on the frame sticker due to aged wrinkling!, can you help? (The v5 declares it registered as 1970.)
    Many thanks, Steve.

    • Hi Steve

      Thank you for your comment, we have had a few like this as the frame sticker has a tendancy to age or vanish altogether! Unfortunetly the only option you have is to reregister it with the DVLA.

        Hi andrew,

        Thanks for the reply, also, do you know how much an original screen would’ve cost back in the 70’s?! I think they may have been made by “Motoplas”. regards, Steve.

    Hello Andrew

    I hope you are well. Just a note to say I am giving an informal slide show talk on the Ariel 3 to a local Motorcycle club ( 60 to 80 people) in Northamptonshire very soon. I was hoping to include a nice mention of your museum and wondered if you would mind me perhaps putting in a few decent digital images for the slide show. It might drum up extra business! The one of you in the shed I have seen online would be fabulous if you have a decent sized jpg.

    My thesis will be with you once I’ve sorted the rewrite/update which is taking longer than expected. Sorry!

    Best wishes

    Could you tell me where to find my frame number please? The sticker is illegible and I am trying to register with the DVLA under its original number and can’t without confirming the frame number
    Thanks Barbara

    Hello Andrew,
    Looking for information on the Ariel3 on the internet I found your Museum. A trip to the Museum is unlikely since I live in The Netherlands. I have been interested in the Ariel3 since its introduction and remember some pictures in one of the British mototcycle magazines with an exploded view of the tilting mechanism. But I cannot find anything on the internet now. I wonder if you can help me with some pictures showing the construction and functioning of the tilting mechanism.
    Good luck with the museum, Piet Noordzij

  5. Hello
    Is there a Workshop Manual in PDF format?
    I have a Hard copy workshop manual and would make it into PDF if you think anybody
    would be interested. I always wanted an Ariel 3 but the nearest I got was a workshop Manual!
    As a matter of interest how many Ariel 3’s are there?

    Kindest Regards

    Keith R. Murray
