Manufactured by Rudge-Whitworth, the ‘Ulster’ was essentially a racing motorcycle turned out as a production bike. It is a 500cc, single OHV. This one was produced in the last year of the model’s production.
This motorcycle still rides well.
One thought on “1939 Rudge ‘Ulster’”
I used to race an Ulster Rudge , the motor was fitted into a baby Triumph frame and gearbox we mainly ran on short circuit dirt tracks. My friend who worked this motor over was a wonderful mechanic. At the time in the 1950’s the engines to beat were the speedway JAP also in baby Triumph frames, however this Rudge was quicker than most of the JAPs. It was so reliable and so well tuned.
