Owner’s Guides

The factory did not publish workshop manuals for the four strokes, only Owner’s Guides, which were the rider’s handbook that was supplied with the machine when new. The pre-war versions are more comprehensive than the later ones but a certain level of knowledge is expected. If you are new to old bikes or just Ariel motorcycles these books will be useful, as they contain gems such as where the light switch is, how to start your mount and the classic ‘how to change gear silently’. One of the most useful illustrations that is always included is a rider’s eye view of the controls; this is usually an accurate illustration but as usual must be used with caution as some versions cover several years.
