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!
