1938 Rycroft Rudge Racer - Watch the Video



1938 Rycroft Rudge 500cc Special prepared for racing and sprinting.

Good basis for your Classic Racing debut, or you could put it back on the road as a fast scratcher for the country lanes with a small amount of work. Comes with the kickstart lever and a choice of gearbox sprockets.

Previous owner used to race and parade this Rudge and says it goes like stink! You could soon be dicing with Rudge aces Mike Farrell and Tony Perkin.

No paperwork with this race bike, but you could apply for an age related number. We can advise on registration.

Starting and tuning notes from the previous owner are included, and state that the bike was built by Stan Ryecroft. The engine was tuned and modified by Les Henshaw, and Colin Chapple rebuilt the gearbox.

Great basis for classic racing or sprinting, or turn it into a fast road bike.
