Beschreibung:

Having ceased motorcycle production in 1933, New Hudson returned briefly to the manufacture of two-wheelers in 1940 with the Autocycle. The engine was Villiers' Junior de Luxe and the Autocycle featured pedal transmission and a rigid front fork. Production resumed in 1946, by which time New Hudson was owned by BSA. The revived Autocycle featured an open, ladies-type frame with single-tube girder front fork. A pressed-steel, blade-type girder fork was adopted in 1948 and the Villiers 2F engine in 1949 when the original Autocycle was replaced by a revised design incorporating a new frame, differently shaped fuel tank and restyled bodywork. Deletion of the 2F unit brought an end to Autocycle production in 1958. This incomplete 'barn find' Autocycle is offered for restoration, without documents and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
