Wow great, thanks so much!I agree Ralph, but '26 or '27 New Hudsons had the tank's side-mount shifter as per the original photo. These were available as 350 or 500cc machines - but as the pic shows the young lady astride a bike bolted to a sidecar, it's probably safe to assume it's a 500. Stunning bike. On this particular model pictured, the brick under the front wheel was an optional extra.
