1963 249cc Ariel Arrow Super Sports

Top of Ariel's two-stroke range, the Arrow Super Sports was given a glamour finish of glided upper works and whitewall tyres, for which reason it was often called the Golden Arrow. Also, it was one of the few British bikes of the time to have the distinctin of being modelled un plastic (by Airfix) as a construction kit. Semi-propelled handlebars and a small plastic handlebar screen gave it a rakish air, but there was nothing "pseudo" about it and the Arrow SS was a very lively model quite capable of being developed further. Unhappily, production ceased in 1965.
