This Rudge-Whitworth tricycle needs a few jobs and is priced accordingly.

It retains its original transfers (decals) on its seat tube. Though frame number 114071 was built in early 1900 I assume it was not sold until 1901. The front rim brake was an optional extra, offered for no extra charge in 1901. Earlier models had fixed wheel with a front plunger brake that acted directly onto the front tyre. A particularly interesting feature of this machine is the set of Rudge-Whitworth patent V section tricycle rear mudguards.

The tricycle requires a repair to strengthen the front fork, which has been badly repaired in the past. New tyres will also need to be fitted, then it will be ready to ride.
