Rudge 4-valve OHV 500cc 1924 vintage motorcycle engine.
Bore and stroke: 85 x 85.
It’s an old engine that has been stored for quite a while. So, it will need a rebuild really. There are a few parts missing. The obvious things are push rods and tubes.
However, the engine case halves have matching numbers. It has a decent set of fins on the head and the barrel. There are just two really small chips as shown in the pictures. The splines look good on the crankshaft and it still has the oil pump housing.
Consider it a very good spare to have around, or (if you’re clever in the machine shop) then this is a good engine almost complete.
If you are in the UK, I’d advise coming to see it first. Or, if you are outside the UK, get a friend to come.
International shipping available. Please ask.
Viewing: Please come and check it over before you buy. It is at PE28, near St Ives in Cambridgeshire.
Shipping: I usually ship to most destinations. If you don’t see a price, please ask. Thanks. International shipping available.
Collection: If you don’t want it shipped, I have plenty of space. If you can’t collect for a while, it’s not a problem. However, I will need to be paid very soon after the sale. Thanks.
Payment: Good old fashioned money on collection is preferred. I can accept payment through PayPal or by bank transfer as well.
Import Taxes: Please note that IMPORT DUTIES are not something I can control. If you are buying from outside the UK, there is a chance that you will have to pay import taxes. Import taxes vary from country to country. If there are charges to pay, it is the buyer’s responsibility to research the cost and pay the duties. The price that you see on my advert is for the item and not the item plus whatever taxes might be due.
