BSA Ariel 3

Been looking for one of these for years, there is one locally that the collector would not sell. Arrived tonight and my wife Ariel cleaned it up while I was chatting with the guy that delivered it. Already found another stateside if anyone is interested.

Klarna?

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Yessss!!!!!!! Such an oddball bike, love it.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Ughhhhhh

I love mg's.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

MG has a really nicely built little motor.

Ariel 3 motor is a Dutch Anker 50 cc-I don't know too much about it yet.

The MG and Ariel are both Ariel's, I just get to work on them and drive them occasionally:)

The color code is curry.

The other Ariel 3 I found is in TN. Owner wants $800. It is disassembled, he had the frame and wheels powder coated. It is blue, he it is a close match on the original color.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

As someone else stated, BSA just bought a horde of Laura M48 engines for these. It’s Just a Batavus under all that rear craziness!

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Makes sense, that is what what looks like. That is actually good news, opens up some possibilities.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

And you already have the matching sweater !!!

Great score ! Everyone loves a good curry.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

All of my wife's knitter friends first noted the matching sweater, she was actually wearing that before she saw the color of the bike:)

Re: BSA Ariel 3

You and I need to get together sometime or at least talk on the phone. Send me a PM. I'm in ND. I no longer act on an impulse. My wife is a divorce attorney.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

?

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Love these trikes and that one looks in very fine fettle, sweet find. And the colour coordination is on a whole other level, even the shoes are close👍

Re: BSA Ariel 3

.......synchronicity........Ariel was meant to have that amazing little Ariel. The universe has spoken.........

Re: BSA Ariel 3

I understood the synchronicity comment.

I was a bit confused by Dimtry.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Yeah, me too.......

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Me three.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

I just think it's a really cool bike, never seen one, I live for the oddballs! How fast does it go? Enjoy!

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Supposedly they go 28-30mph, this one needs a little love before it will be up and running. I plan on spending some time in the garage tonight. Trying to finish other peoples bikes to clear some floor space, but this deserves some attention too.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

PM sent about other bike

Re: BSA Ariel 3

Cool, love the wheels, what kind of rear brakes? On the axle or each wheel, post some video's when she's ready, this is really neat.

Re: BSA Ariel 3

I've heard anecdotes that there was a lot of rivalry and animosity among the Brit bike builders Norton, BSA, Triumph and Ariel, when they got bought out and consolidated I wonder if this wasn't called Ariel 3 as a dig on the 'ariel 4'

Re: BSA Ariel 3

It is funny that they refer to the number of wheels rather than the number of cylinders on the Ariel 4. (edited)
