Originally, it went to G. R. Spencer in Market Rasen, Lincs on 14-2-30 with a quick action twistgrip and without a speedo. See the factory record entry here

This model G is as close to catalogue spec as possible. It has the 10MD track carb and the KR1 racing magneto. The headlamp is the SS49 which was current when the new 1930 range was being put together. Although painted wheel centres were not mentioned in the catalogue, period Ariel photos have shown that these did exist at the time.

Did man (or woman) ever make a more beautiful motor cycle ?
