Ariel Square Four 1951
Postwar the Square Four was updated, initially mainly with telescopic forks replacing the prewar girders. The Mark I 4G (for 1949) saw the cast iron clyinder block and head replaced with an alloy one, while there was also a switch to coil ignition. All in all, the amount of weight saved was a not inconsequential 32lb.
