1896 Rudge-Wedge No 21 Full Roadster


This rare machine is an excellent restored example. The Rudge marque enthusiast informs that its frame number suggests manufacture in 1896. It is very similar to the 1896 Rudge-Whitworth catalogue illustration above. However, there are no holes in the headstock for a badge, which, in his opinion means that it is in fact a Rudge-Wedge, which were built of the same parts.

It was common practise with major manufacturers to sell off batches of older frames through the trade. Rudge Wedge used Rudge-Whitworth frames, so that’s the most likely explanation for an earlier frame than components.
