Rudge motorcycles were manufactured from 1911 to 1946, and the Birmingham firm was highly regarded for its innovative engineering solutions. Rudge enjoyed a string of successes at the Isle of Man TT races during the 1930s.
This fine sporting marque was very competitive in speedway, and also trials events in the hands, and feet, of Murray’s dad Graham (Walker) Rudge’s sales manager at the time. Works supported racing and the supply of race machinery stopped around the mid thirties after the death of Rudge- Whitworth principal and driving force J.V. PUGH and subsequent sorties into autocycle production and other badly managed ventures foresaw the demise of the once proud Rudge concern in 1940.
This wonderful example has had only 4 owners since 1938 and is in lovely restored condition.
