This 1939 example was purchased from Norm and Lynda Maddock of Warkworth, New Zealand, who are staunch supporters of the NZ Vintage and Classic motorcycle scene and the NZ Classic Motorcycle Racing Register. Norm used to run the Road Trial at Pukekohe and Lynda is well known for her efforts on the race track with their Rudge and AJS race bikes. The Maddocks acquired it from a private vendor in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, and restored it in the 1980s. It was purchased from them for the Nelson-based NZ Classic Motorcycles collection in November, 2008. It was acquired by Transport World for their Classic Motorcycle Mecca collection in May 2016.
