Hi, I’ve just seen on the BBC News that the current owners of the Ariel name have made some new bikes. (They have been making the Ariel Atom naked sports car for about ten years).
Interestingly, of the three vee-twin bikes shown in the video, two have girder forks, apparently in alloy forgings/castings. The third bike has conventional telescopic forks. Fourteen employees at the moment, so a long way to go, but let’s hope that they succeed and prosper.
