Healey 1000/4

The Healey 100/4 was a made to order motorcycle produced in limited numbers from 1971 to 1977. The bike used an Ariel Square Four motor (which was discontinued back in 1959) in a modern Egli style frame. The bike was light and squeezed a surprisingly good performance out of a venerable 52 bhp motor. The very nature of using reconditioned motors in a new build meant that the bike was never destined to be produced in numbers more than a handful and from the off, though a charming bike, the Healey was outclassed by the Honda, BSA and Triumph multis. Altogether 28 bikes were produced as complete bikes and kits.
