Ariel Arrow and Leader - Motorbike Greetings Card LM15


Classic motorbike greetings card featuring a 250cc Ariel Leader (background) together with its more sporty variant the Arrow.
Part of the BSA Group, Ariel had ceased to make four-stroke motorcycles in the late 1950s preferring to concentrate on the production of smaller two-stroke machines. The two motorcycles seen here were the most successful items to come of this philosophy. First in the line of two-strokes, the Leader was very much a commuters motorcycle with panniers and shielding to protect one's trousers from unsightly oil leaks on the way to work. It proved quite popular and as well as spawning the Arrow, lead to the mock-up of a fascinating 700cc machine that now resides in the British Motorcycle Museum. The Arrow, sometimes known as the Golden Arrow, was a sportier off-shoot of the Leader and proved exceptionally popular with learners who wanted a machine with more power. Initially produced in 200cc capacity, Arrows were later produced at 250cc and were liked for their excellent brakes and engines that could take a considerable amount of tuning. It is even reckoned that more than one Arrow even passed the magical 'ton', quite a feat for a 1960s 250cc.

A perfect greetings card for a classic motorcycle enthusiast.
