Mike Wild's (#25) 2012 Motorcycle Cannonball Entry


1924 Rudge Four, a set on Flickr.

Presented here is the second motorcycle from the UK-Based Roaring Rudges race team, a 1924 Rudge Four owned by Mike Wild (#25). This machine has had extensive modifications, or "Cannonball-izations", including: the creation of a new frame from 2 original Rudge units (one being 3 inches longer), a lowered motor, and different gearbox. Mike's Rudge has successfully passed MoT Road Testing in the UK and is "road legal." The Rudge's first test? Mike has entered the machine into a local hillclimbing event for the month of April.
