Seller: dryheat1 (971) 100%, Location: Mesa, Arizona, Ships to: US, Europe, CA, AU, Item: 223226623288 Many hours and lots of money were spent to overhaul and update this vintage motorcycle. A liitle about me: I'm an aerospace tech with a hobby of collecting and restoring vintage bikes, the older the better! I've been a mechanic for 30 years and have worked on bikes, boats, cars and aircraft. I found this bike about 3 years ago in Prescott, AZ. The bike had been left to the former owner's long time employer after the former owner passed away. I bought the bike from the employer, who owned a racing engine building and development company(offshore racing boats) At the the time of the former owners passing, he was in the middle of an engine overhaul on this bike and I got the bike with the engine apart. Some of the machine work had already been completed and some new parts already purchased. The guy obviously knew what he was doing, as he was the business owners right hand man. Since I never got to talk to the former owner, I had to do some detective work in the process of putting the bike back together. The employer didn’t have any details on why the engine was apart. There were some spare parts which came with the bike and two sets of cases, one set damaged. I started to work on the bike in late 2016. The crank journals had already been reground for new undersize rod big end bearings and the cylinders had been bored for a new piston set by the PO. Also he had replaced the phenolic dampers on the gears the connect the cranks together. These are common problems with the Square Four, the dampers get loose and cause the engine to rattle. Also it is very common on the SQ4 for the crank oil passages to get plugged up, please do your homework on this before you buy a bike that has not had the engine overhauled, appx. 60% of SQ4's WILL throw a connecting rod due to the cranks getting plugged up if this is not addressed! LOOK IT UP. This is obviously exactly what happened to this bike, as the damaged cases were number matching to the frame. The replacement cases are number matching to the 1950 model year.OEM aluminum connecting rods were inspected ,checked for straightness and new small end bushings installed and reamed to fit the new piston pins. The oil passages and sludge traps were fully cleaned, a new high volume Morgo oil pump installed, and an aftermarket oil filter kit installed to eliminate the issue. The timing chest was drilled to reduce internal pressure , which can be a problem with the Morgo oil pump. Seemed to work, bike only leaks a couple drops after riding 30 miles.Some of the new parts also used in the engine build are: new timing chain, new timing chain tensioner, new correct low compression piston set, cylinder head was overhauled with new valve guides, valves were reground and seats recut, Otto head gaskets, new primary chain, and new plugs, points and condensor. Also it has a billet oil sump plate from Draganfly. I overhauled the transmission too, many parts are not available new but I was able to locate a source for several good used gears it needed, also I sealed up the tranny cases everywhere there could be a leak and fitted an updated oil seal from Draganfly on the output shaft. Clutch is new with updated fiber inserts that last a lot longer and don't burn like the original cork ones. Tranny is filled with the correct 00 semi liquid grease. Chassis wise, The entire frame and associated parts were powder coated black before assembly, the plunger rear suspension was overhauled with all new bronze bushings (which is another common issue, the bushings wear out quickly resulting in a sloppy handling bike) and the forks were overhauled with fresh seals and oil, also the steering head bearings were updated with new tapered roller parts. The bike has a new DID drive chain, new cables, and new replica lever assemblies. New Dunlop Gold Seal replica vintage tires and new tubes and rim bands.There is the stock rear stand, and I fitted an aftermarket side stand which is much easier to use. The Smiths Chronometric speedometer works perfectly. Most of the aluminum parts have been polished including the engine cases and covers. I had several steel parts rechromed as needed. The gas tank had been repainted some time in the past and still looks good so I left it alone. There are a few chips in the tank up near the steering neck, not very noticeable. The tank rubber pads are old but I left them alone to add a little patina. New ones are available from Draganfly. All the other body parts were repainted in satin black, and there are a couple very minor flaws. Bike is 95% original, the only exceptions I know of are the ignition switch (aftermarket universal type), the battery box, and the mufflers. Replica original mufflers are available from Feked in the UK, and there is also a replica dummy battery box from Draganfly in the UK if thats what you want. The battery is a modern compact sealed unit which is commonly used by many SQ4 owners. The stock mufflers are too quiet for my taste so the bike has shorty straight silencers on it, stilll not annoyingly loud but sounds good and they can hear you coming. There is no chain guard, it didn't come with the bike and I think it looks better without it. This is essentially a new bike with several important and necessary updates. If you know the SQ4, they had a few issues. Most of these have been addressed in the build. Do your homework before you buy a bike that has not been overhauled or be prepared to spend $$$$ to get it right! I spent almost $6000 in parts and services alone to rebuild this bike, and that's not counting my labor! Draganfly in the UK is the best source for parts and I spent a good 2 - 3 thousand with them. All receipts, instructions and diagrams I used in the build will be included in the sale. There are less than 400 miles on the bike since the build was completed! The bike odometer shows 27,000 miles, and that is verified by the Arizona title as original. I have been completely through this bike and know it like the back of my hand. There are still a couple of fairly minor issues. The charging systems were inadequate on these bikes and there is really no easy fix. There is no problem during the day but with the headlight on, the battery is discharging at any speed below 35-40 mph. There is nothing wrong with the generator or charging system, it's a design flaw and is well known among SQ4 owners, look it up. I don't ride the bike at night except for maybe a short hop. I've ridden the bike for 50 mile runs during the day with no problems (headlight off) Also the head gaskets seep a little, I have been retorquing the heads every hundred miles or so and it’s getting better. The original head gaskets were known to leak like crazy and the fix is supposed to be the Otto gaskets which I used, I think they will just need to bed in some more. The gas tank was lined sometime in the past and looks to be holding up well. This is a great example of a rare vintage collectible motorcycle that has been completely gone through, overhauled and up dated. Serious bidders only! I have seen SQ4's going anywhere from $5-30K. Some of them not even in running condition or maybe a basket case. Any Square Four that has not run in years needs to have the engine completely disassembled and inspected first. This is a bike you can ride every day. It sat for 3 months during the Arizona summer, I brought it out and it started within 5 kicks. It comes with a rear rack,a windscreen, and an extra bench seat that is in excellent condition.The originaI tire pump is still in place under the seat. There is also a Whitworth tool kit with a couple original Ariel wrenches, and a few small spare parts. I believe my Buy it Now price is very fair for what you are getting. Pictures tell the story so I’ve included shots from every angle and also several from the build process. Here is a link to a short video of the bike being started and run for a couple minutes. Get on the Ariel Owners MotorCycle Club’s forum out of the UK for all the best info regarding these and other Ariels. It was a great help to me as I slowly rehabbed this bike. The service manual which exists was printed by Clymer back in the day and is referred to as “the Waller book”. It is not very detailed but does have some useful information. I have a copy and will include in the sale. I've included every detail I could remember about this bike and the build for serious bidders only. My Buy it Now price reflects the time, labor and expense of bringing this bike into top condition.
