The reason for this post is, thirteen months after I started to tear it down to the last nut and bolt, all but a few details are done and I fired up the Ariel for the first time this week (on the first kick!). I'm about to start a series of shake-down runs of ever-increasing length to make sure it is as ready as it can be for the Cannonball.

You can easily spot me on the list of Cannonball riders http://motorcyclecannonball.com/riders/ since I'm the only one on an Ariel, but if you want to save skimming the list I'm #123 (I couldn't have the first entry number so I picked the last, which also happens to be as easy to remember as, um, 123...).
Best wishes for success on the Cannonball with the '28 Ariel C.
