Like that, I would say MORE NISHIKI HERE!
Great bike man!
I think they used the frame's that where left when the newer Alien was out for the first Ariels and later Cascade's. I saw a Ariel on the net with the same brake brases under the rearframe as your Alien but that one was newer...
I had a '90 Ariel (the year after this Alien) and the frame was definitely not the same. The Alien is made of Tange Prestige and the Ariel is made of 4130, a fair bit heavier and beefier tuding sizes. Loved that bike...
Mr Kawasaki, what was the shipping from the US out of interest? I asked the guy you bought the Alien from what it would cost to get it to Australia but I think he considered it all too hard. To the victor go the spoils...
Here's my (NOS) '90 Alien ACX. I still need the '89 Alien.
