Very rare long-stroke HS, expertly restored by a marque expert!1957 Ariel HSEngine Number: MH309 Mention Ariel and the mind immediately goes to images of the iconic 1000cc Square Four, but Ariel's history is anchored by the single-cylinder Red Hunter, introduced in 1932. A quarter-century later, Ariel's greatest fame in competition came from an updated single, the HT trials mount ridden by feet-up ace Sammy Miller, while the company's HS scrambles machine was a pretty formidable weapon in its own arena. Introduced in 1954, the HS model was powered by a handsome, all-alloy 500cc thumper running a 9.1:1 compression ratio, lumpy cams and heavy-duty valve springs, all good for a traction-grabbing 33-34 hp. "Built to Go!" said the magazine ads, and many a surprised BSA Catalina Scrambler pilot could attest to that. Dispatching bumps was a new duplex frame with swinging-arm rear suspension, a definite step up from Ariel's previous plunger-frame setup. A curvaceous right-side exhaust, chrome-paneled gas tank and chrome-plated fenders added style and flair.
