The Birmingham firm of New Hudson started out as a bicycle manufacturer. The company's first powered machine of 1903 used a clip-on Minerva engine, and this was followed by the first proper motorcycle in 1910. New Hudson made its Isle of Man TT debut in 1911 but major competition success remained elusive until Bert Le Vack took over racing development in 1927, becoming the first man to lap Brooklands at over 100mph on a 500cc machine that same year. This twin-port, overhead-valve New Hudson sports roadster was discovered in the Gloucester area by Felix Burke and part restored by various prominent VMCC members including Ormonde Gurr. The machine had been disassembled when purchased by the current vendor, a VMCC member for 50 years, who has since restored it. The machine won a Vintage category concours 1st prize first time out following its completion in 2012, and remains in commensurately excellent condition. The machine boasts a rebuilt Graisley 223 Super Sport sidecar, known as Model D as featured in the New Hudson 1928 sales catalogue. There is no denying that this stylish New Hudson, unencumbered by any electric lighting, and its lightweight, aluminium-bodied 'chair' make a most handsome combination. The machine is offered with sundry restoration invoices, VMCC dating certificate, current road fund licence and V5C registration document.
