Ralph Jones & his Ariel

This is an old picture of the bike my dad had when I was a little girl (and I'm 67 today). It was a 250cc single cylinder, 2 valve, double exhaust ports. He bought it from a Col. Shanahan who had brought it back to the states in the rear of a B-17 bomber during WWII. My dad was an aircraft mechanic at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. The exhaust pipes were P-38 gun blast tubes. I thought you might like a vintage pic of this bike.
My dad was Ralph Jones and has been gone since 1992 but I'll always remember his bike.
