1958 Ariel 5 HT 500cc TRIALS


The Ariel 5HT is one of the most successful Trials machine ever built in its class.

Made famous by the very successful and unbeatable trials rider Sammy Miller. Being a rare due to the fact that production was very limited, fakes and replicas abound, but very few genuine HT5’s exist. This fine example is 100% genuine.

This Ariel 5HT was manufactured in 1957 and first registered in January 1958, the Buff Log Book shows 3 owners prior to the more recent V5 showing the last owner as the well-known Motorcycle engineer Mick Miller, first registered on 22-01-1958 REG NO : 670DTJ Taxation & MOT Class: Historic –Tax & MOT Exempt – Vin No : CRT488 – Engine No : CNJ319


The subject of an earlier no expense spared restoration seeing very little use since. Being a Centerpiece in on display in a private collection. The bike starts and runs as it should, you will not find better genuine HT5 and that’s even if you are lucky to find a comparable anyway. Very useable and eligible for classic pre 1965 trails or a great centerpiece and work or art for your living room. This example comes with original logbook and current V5.
