Ariel 1935 Model LH 250 cc ohv



Ariel 1935 250 cc OHV   model LH “Red Hunter” frame # Y 10652 engine #  HA 654


The basics of the “Red Hunter “ could be traced back to a  Val Page design, but the name first came into use in the 1932 programme that had been designed by   Edward Turner. 
The new  sporty OHV models in 250, 350 and 500cc capacity  were very good-looking,  reliable and sturdy .
There were a number of differences with the standard OHV machines, to name a few:  the Red Hunter models had a  tuned engine,  aluminium-alloy  oil-bath primary chain case,  high-level exhaust and chromium petrol  tank with   red top panel and chromium-plated rims with red –painted centres. 
They became great performers in off-road competition work as well as for fast touring and were produced till 1960, when Ariel management decided to concentrate on two strokes and phase out four stroke production. 
This  light but lively model is an older restoration and a good runner.
