Looks interesting plus it will have Honda reliability.
Most of my life, I drank whiskey, rode bikes, and chased women..........the rest of it I just wasted.

No lubing or adjusting, my Vmax was shaft drive, never caused me any problems..

Why have you done that? What I stated is my opinion and to me the Ariel looks fine and how on earth will it be unreliable, the engine and running gear is  made by Honda, a make noted for reliability.

I think the Ariels look great. If I had c.20k to spend on a bike I'd seriously consider the road (rather than cruiser) version.

I think both options look great and at 20K not too badly priced - a 2014 Diavel Carbon is 17K. I'd go for the cruiser with the double clutch box as something totally different to the R and the double wishbone front end looks interesting.

I definitely prefer the traditional upside down fork version.  The girder front version is just too........ I dunno. I think I like the Confederate's better than that one.
