|Shot in Brooklyn yesterday at the 'Tweed Run', a pair of Ariel 'Ordinary' bicycles, ca. 1880; the Ladies' Model is especially rare, with a side-saddle!|
|The Perraux steam cycle of 1867, using the Michaux pedal cycle. This machine was exhibited in 'The Art of the Motorcycle' exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum; it now sits in a storage box, deep inside the Musée Sceaux in Paris, where it cannot be seen...|
|The Ariel tricycle of 1898, using a deDion 239cc engine|
|An original-condition 1900 Ariel Quadricycle, which sits hidden in a warehouse of London's Science Museum|
|The 1901 Ariel Quadricycle, which returns to its original sales location at 101 New Bond Street for the Bonhams 'London to Brighton' sale on November 1st, 2013|
By poetic coincidence, the machine will return to its 'home' at 101 New Bond Street, to be sold in the Bonhams 'London to Brighton' sale on November 1st – in the very same spot it was sold 112 years ago.
