Ariel 1938 350cc OHV model NH “Red Hunter” frame # XG 6566 engine # BE 630
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.
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 NH is a handsome machine with polished aluminium oil bath chain case and upswept exhaust pipes.
It’s an older restoration.
