New Hudson Classic Motorcycles

Maintaining its heritage as one of Britain's most important motorcycle manufacturers, the famous CCM brand continues to keep its place in two-wheel history some thirty-five years after it was first conceived. Back in the 1970's the Bolton based factory produced some of its most winning machinery. With the company headed by its founder Alan Clews, those original bikes enjoyed some of the biggest successes ever, both on and off the track, as results were matched by sales. Some three decades later and the man that started it all is back in charge to create the next chapter of this great piece of British motorcycling history. Joined by his two sons, Austin and Russell, who themself has already played their own parts in bringing CCM this far, and his son in law Gary Harthern, the family has been successful in buying the brand back after several months of negotiations. With a plan to reinstall the values that made CCM so great back then, the Clews family has brought the company right back to its roots.

During the early vintage years New Hudson produced two models, a 211 cc light two stroke and this 87x100 model, priced at £ 100 solo and £ 125 as a combination.
