Glanfield Rudge

Glanfield Rudge was a motorcycle produced in 1928, by Stanley Glanfield.

The machine was built for the new sport of speedway or dirt-track racing that had recently been introduced from Australia. It was fitted with a 499cc Rudge engine, forks and wheels to a duplex frame with strutted tubes.

Rudge themselved introduced a very successful speedway model later that year, so the life of the Glanfield Rudge was short.

The Coventry Transport Museum mentions that in July 1928 Glanfield departed on a Rudge combination on a tour that would take him through four continents and cover 18,000 miles, so it appears 1928 was a particularly busy year for the man.
