I'm Kees , from the Netherlands, and Arielist in heart and soul....Father of two daughters, a wife and two Ariels, a '53 Mk1 Square Four and a '54 Ariel KH 500 Twin. I started my motorbike career restoring a 1959 175cc two stroke JAWA, that when finished I sold for a 500 OHC JAWA twin. The twin I swapped for a 1933 Square Four, that I never finished. Before finishing I swapped that one back to its previous owner for the 53 Mk1....When some time later I visited my, by then friend, and, Jeezzz....He had this beautiful lime-green Moto Guzzi V7Sport....So Goodbye Mk1 Hello Guzzi. Well, some time ago I went to see him again for a beer, when he said that he was gonna trade in the Mk1 for some undefined other bike. WTHF??? Hell you don't!!! When the Mk1 is going, there's only one place for her to go, right back to ME!! So....Hello back Mk1, goodbye Guzzi...And to tell you the truth : I've never been happier :-) And, so, last week, she got accompanied by a TWIN sister 500KH...That's the way things sometimes go, right?
cheers for now,
