Can the Rudge experts explain how it is that some examples receive the hand chainwheel and some not?

Does it have more to do with quality level or with when manufactured?

Have no knowledge of the marque, hence this silly question.

Thanks for any information.

I have no idea and it is a good question. I have a 1947 Rudge Whitworth with full chaincase. It has the Hand Of Ulster chain ring and you would never see it except during maintenance. I also had a '59 Rudge with the very plain chainring. The one on this '51 is a 2 piece chain ring.

Yes, the bars were bare above the brake levers (and your levers appear to be located lower on the drops than usual). As far as grips - I will defer to someone with more knowledge, but if it were mine I would just tape the lower ends with 2 or 3 wraps of cotton.
Here is where they are now. Pretty comfortable. Look more normal?
