This 1952 Ariel 600 VB half century old side valve machine looks great. The original black paint has got a fantastic patina. My friend Dick who owns this one has improved it to be a “Café racer” just to reverse the handlebar. In the early morning of the Brotherhoods Swap Meet for couple of weeks ago, he decided to find out if somebody was interested to take over the bike, because he has too many other projects ….. In spite of the cold weather and the fact he probably will be separated from this beauty, he looks happy!

The sidecar body has been back from the painter for a couple of weeks. Now all parts are ready, the chassis have been painted for a while. I have now mounted the windshield and the cover as well the spare wheel carrier and the footrest. Fender and the lamps come next….Then soon, the only remaining is to hook up the sidecar to my Flathead 1947 and go for a ride….
