Motorcycle Collector November
Features - Cover Story: 1939 Ariel Red Hunter (Designed in 1925 by famed engineer Val Page and later updated by Edward Turner, the 500cc, overhead valve Ariel Red Hunter was a popular model for many years. The success of the Red Hunters, along with a few other factors, put Ariel in the position to later purchase Triumph in 1935. Turner was promoted to chief designer and general manager for the Triumph side of the business and he went on to create many exciting new models in the Coventry factory.
