Glanfield Rudge was a motorcycle produced in 1928, by Stanley Glanfield.

The machine was built for the new sport of speedway or dirt-track racking that had recently started up. It was fitted with a 499cc Rudge engine, forks and wheels to a duplex frame with strutted tubes.

Rudge themselved introduced a very successful speedway model later that year, so the life of the Glanfield Rudge was short.
