Ariel Leader

On Display

Announced in July 1958, as an entirely new concept, the Ariel Leader was an instant sensation. Radical lines combined motorcycle performance and handling with the weather protection of a scooter. Die–cast components, pressed steel frame and thermo-plastic body panels kept machining to a minimum and allowed quick and accurate production. The Leader came with a long accessory list. Purchased by the original owner for tax reasons this machine was used only once, and then put into storage. It has recorded only 36 miles!
