Rudge Whitworth Cycles was a British bicycle, bicycle saddle, motorcycle and sports car wheel manufacturer that resulted from the merger of two bicycle manufacturers in 1894, Whitworth Cycle Co. of Birmingham and Rudge Cycle Co. of Coventry. Rudge motorcycles were produced from 1911 to 1946. The firm was known for its innovations in engine and transmission design, and its racing successes. Their sales motto was "Rudge it, do not trudge it." The company also produced the first detachable wire wheel in 1907, and was known for its knock-off wheels on sports cars; that brand continued well into the 1960s. Steib Metallbau, later trading as Josef Steib Spezialfabrik für Seitenwagen, were a company from Nuremberg in Germany who manufactured sidecars. The firm was founded in 1914 by Josef Steib Senior and began making sidecars in 1928 following a commission from the motorcycle manufacturer Ardie. The company closed in 1957.

This 1935 Rudge Special and Steib sidecar combination was purchased by the late vendor as a fully restored machine in 1996. He did not use it much in the begging of his ownership and sadly due to his health, it has been tucked away in his garage. The restoration was of a very high standard, but now showing some signs of wear and tear. The Rudge will need recommissioning before placing back on the road. It comes complete with a continuation RF60 logbook from 1946 and an old-style V5.
