Offered from a deceased's estate
1912 New Hudson 349cc Lightweight Project
Registration no. LE 2248
Frame no. 1365
Engine no. 2561

Birmingham-based New Hudson started out as a bicycle manufacturer in the Victorian era. The company's first powered machine of 1903 used a clip-on Minerva engine, and this was followed by their first proper motorcycle in 1910. The first model powered by an engine of its own make arrived in 1911. The economic depression of the early 1930s hit New Hudson hard, and in 1933 the company (by then manufacturers of Girling automotive components) ceased to build motorcycles. There was a brief return in 1940 with the New Hudson Autocycle, later built by BSA.

The late owner's family has confirmed they have owned this early new Hudson since at least the 1960s. Ridden by the vendor's father and grandfather, the machine comes with Pioneer Certificate No.2, only the second granted, and carries a tax disc expiring in May 1965, which is probably the last time it was used. The aforementioned grandfather was Trump-JAP manufacturer, Angus Maitland, and there is a copy article on file from The Veteran and Vintage Magazine depicting him on the New Hudson. Partially dismantled and incomplete, the machine requires full restoration and is sold strictly as viewed. There are no registration documents with the motorcycle, which does not appear on the HPI database; accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to the validity of the registration number prior to bidding. Offered with a large quantity of correspondence, most dating from 1949, and the aforementioned Pioneer Certificate.
