Do we have a vintage dirt track enthusiast out
I must admit to being a little out of my depth
with this one, but it is clear that we have here the makings of a particularly nice Rudge
dirt tracker. At the end of the 1920s Rudge took over from Douglas as the dirt track
machine of choice, and for a few years ruled the roost.
Although I am happy to discuss the bike with
potential owners worldwide, it is a project that might best suit a knowledgeable local
enthusiast - perhaps someone from Melbourne? The 'problem' is that the motor is currently
devoid of internals, and although suitable parts no doubt exist amongst the parts in the
collection (I have instructions as to which set of flywheels should live inside), time is
needed to sort through and find the correct parts to complete this interesting machine.
If you are worried that you'll have no-one to
race against, there is another basket-case Dirt Track Rudge that could be sold with this
bike, or separately.
Vintage Dirt Trackers make yourselves known!
