Buddy_Holly_1958_Ariel_Cyclone.jpg

         13th of April, 1958:

          BUDDY  HOLLY's

                    new

          ARIEL  CYCLONE




               


          In 1958 BUDDY HOLLY bought his new Ariel Cyclone Motorcycle. 


          Only 200 of this legendary and rare bike have been manufactured.




          1958 kaufte BUDDY HOLLY ein brandneues Motorrad aus englischer

          Produktion, das legendäre ARIEL CYCLONE, das nur etwa 200 x

          produziert wurde.





                                     Sandy's   1958   original   Ariel   Cyclone.


1958_ARIEL_CYCLONE.jpg     






       Fab !






            A  Buddy Holly fan, Sandy from Canada, sent me a photo of his


                      1958  Ariel Cyclone from 1958,  taken in his garage.




                                                He wrote:



" Thought you might enjoy this picture taken in my garage of my

                           1958 Ariel Cyclone and collection. 



Ariel1.jpg




I am researching this very rare , little known, exciting  motorcycle.




Ariel2.jpg




I believe only about 180 to 237 were manufactured, and Buddy's


# CNLF 4510 was one of the very first made; possibly the 3rd ! "

"Picture attached is spare Project / Part bike c/w  HC8  engine.

Sandy, ein Buddy Holly Fan aus Kanada, schickte mir ein gelungenes


Foto seines liebevoll restaurierten Motorrades, das in seiner Garage steht,

eine original


1958er

ARIEL

CYCLONE
.




  Er hat dieses sehr seltene und wenig bekannte grandiose Motorrad


                  in den Originalzustand zurückversetzt.

Nach seinen



Informationen



wurden nur



zwischen



180 und 237



Motorräder
 


dieser Art



hergestellt.






Buddy Holly's Motorrad mit der Fabriknummer CNLF 4510 war eines der


ersten, die produziert wurden, möglichweise das dritte der Kleinserie.

Diese Fotos wollte ich den Fans von Buddy Holly nicht vorenthalten.


Wunderschönes Sammlerstück inmitten vieler schöner Sammlerstücke

On the Buddy Holly / Waylon  Jennings  1958  ARIEL  CYCLONE,


under the engine seriel  # CNLF4510, stamped on the left


crankcase, appears " HC8 " . 


This stands for High Compression  8.3  or  8.5  to 1  compression ratio,


pistons. 


This  proves  the  engine  to  be  the  special  40  HP  Cyclone  engine.


It  does  not  prove  that  it  is  a  Cyclone   model  motorcycle. 


The  base  model  FH  or  FHS   " Huntmaster "  could  be  ordered


with the  40  HP  Cyclone  engine. 




Detailfoto von Sandy's feiner 1958er Maschine  aus britischer Produktion von der Firma Ariel, die von 1898 bis 1965 gute Motorräder fertigte, unter anderem das von Buddy Holly.




" Attached  picture  shows  the  HC8  on  my  CNLF 5060  engine. "


A Cyclone must have this 40 HP, HC8 engine, High Western ( USA )


handle bars, and the chromed sports mud guards, c/w with the small


Lucas # 529 tail light.


If it is missing one of these features then it is Huntmaster with some


Cyclone features.




1958_ARIEL_CYCLONE_LEFT.jpg




For those that may be interested in more information about  1958 ARIEL CYCLONEs, the January 1959 U.S.A. magazine, " CYCLE " has a " Road Test No. 100 " on pages 14, 15, and 16. ( They did not know production had ended ! ) 


All Cyclones were manufactured in late 1957 ( as a 1958 Model ) and 1958.  Some left overs were sold by dealers as 1959 and possibly 1960 Models. I see on the  " Motorcycle Memories " web site that Dale Jackson may offer this, under 1959 magazines, # 18884.


For their own enjoyment, I encourage anyone interested in 1958 Ariel Cyclones to order the Cyclone Catalogue from Draganfly Motorcycles. ( just a few pounds ) It has great colour graphics and features three views.


1. View over gas tank from left rear ( a great shot to frame ! )


2. Right side view of motorcycle c/w  features etc and " Twist the Grip and go like the Wind on this new Ariel - see for yourself what CYCLONE engine performance really is ! "


3. Two views of engine c/w  Technical Data.
