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. There are no documents with this un-restored Autocycle, which is offered without reserve.
