1938 500cc Rudge Special Fantastic fully restored.

Fantastic 1938 Rudge Special. Newly restored and in fantastic condition.

It should be noted that despite its name the Special was the touring 500, the Ulster being the sports version. But this particular bike goes very well. It is no slow coach. Features include the enclosure of the valve-gear for 1937 and the switching of the gearchange lever from the left-hand to the right-hand side of the gearbox. A compact machine with a willing engine and powerful linked brakes, this 500 Special is a delight to ride and copes easily with present-day traffic conditions.

Current V5C and MOT & tax to April 2012
