Rudge model no. 2

D. Rudge & Co. was one of the main producers of penny farthings and quite a few have survived. Rudge built all types and they all are quality machines: good straightforward tourers (like the No.2), expensive models with tangent spokes, racers ...

Identifying a Rudge is not hard: they have lots of characteristic details and the Rudges that I know have the makers name stamped on top of the handlebars and neck.
