Saw this on the weekend - very nice. 92 New Hudsons were made. This is the manx version. A quality machine. Note the neat ally chain guard - a piece of art. 1928 500cc power plus.

I think there were a lot more than 92 New Hudson's made.

More likely, there were 92 Manx versions made, as these were racebikes.

I don't have any reference books at hand, but I think New Hudsons were in production throughout the 20's and 30's if not longer, with a range of models running from 250cc to 500cc.

That is a beautiful bike. Built in the tradition of the old "sporting singles" that were the mainstay of competition in England up to the 1960's Norton Manx.

[edit]
From Encyclopedia of The World's Motorcycles, by Irwin Tragatsch, Page 227, New Hudson; England 1909-1957. Most models originally used their own 346cc, 496cc, and 598cc Sidevalve and OHV singles. Production was stopped in 1933, then the name was revived by BSA in 1945. By this time, production was limited to 98cc mopeds with Villiers engines.

'73 Norton 850 Interstate...

picked this up two years ago and have put many miles on it, mostly trouble free aside from two fires , photo is from the day I bought it. Had another Norton and a couple of BSA's in the past but this is the best of the bunch I've owned by far

Sweet Interstate, dude! I know a guy who is "older" (meaning older than ME!). He has a white Norton Interstate that he rides all over the country, all the time! He lives in Nebraska but will do rides such as popping down to North Carolina for the weekend to ride old BritBikes with a bunch of buddies. He cranks out like BIG mileage days, all freeway riding.

After much mucking about yesterday, Deuce and I finally got a ride in. The weather was just about perfect, and the sunshine was actually kinda glorious, instead of being so painful (for a change)! I'd guess the temps were in the mid-high 80s, and much cooler in the mountains! The whole ride, the weather, -everything- was SWEET! Like magic. i'm tellin ya.

Here's a couple pix.

Why, yes Rich you're right- it IS down York County way!

I THINK mid Ohio is on the list for this summer but I have to see how it all shakes out. Most likely I will be there. Might actually DRIVE out this year and trailer a couple bikes! Either that, or I'll ask Wade to trailer my Norton and I'll ride one of the BMWs out... I guess it all depends on work- July's kinda light and i gotta make hay while the sun's a-shinin'...
Bottom Line:

If I can scramble up some dough, it'll be a go.

Tom sez:

"I THINK mid Ohio is on the list for this summer but I have to see how it all shakes out."

Sounds like a plan. I like the idea of you having Wade haul a bike out while your ride one of the modern ones. I will put you on the list as a definite maybe.

I actually think I have ridden a bike down that specific road in York County

And BTW, when you get to Mid Ohio on Thursday, gonna have a small amount of Lake Erie Monster for some people to try.

On refIection I think you are right the owner must have been talking about 92 of cthe model.

The later stuff they produced does not look anywhere near as glamorous as this one.

Cheers

That is one stunning Bonnie...! Wow.

I like the hose reel back rest... Sorry, could not resist.

Again, great looking Triumph.

Best,
Rob
