Sammy Miller's Ariel GON 786 trial test

.
A few days ago I had the Good surprise to receive an email from Mister Justyn Norek (Senior) sending me these Amazing pictures of this Iconic Ariel GON 786. A great photographer shooting his Son on such an Iconic bike, what eslse ...








All pictures by Justyn Norek Senior - Test Rider Justyn Norek Junior.

When trials enthousiasts think about history of motorcycle trials, they think "Sammy Miller", and when you think Sammy Miller you think "ARIEL". This motorcycle is such important icon and milestone in trials. It really seperates two eras of trials history, pre 65 and after. This is so, as genius of Sammy Miller has brought his Ariel to apogeum of technical development, and than killed it with two stroke Bultaco Sherpa. Another incredible project that created another Icon of Design. Coming back to Ariel story, only two original bikes exist, they had registration numbers GOV 132 and second one has GON 786. Both were extensively used in competiotion by Sammy,even if more "famous" is GOV 132, which was more frequently used in trials and photographed, while it's twin brother GON 786 was kind of spare machine and source of spare parts as well, but was technically developed to identical level.

Justyn Norek Senior just retired from his work as a car Designer and was before a Motocross GP Photographer between 1965 and 1975. His son Justyn Norek Junior is one of the Top Italian MTB Downhill Racer.
