Founded in 1894 through the merger of two bicycle makers, Rudge-Whitworth moved into motorcycle production in 1911. They made a name for themselves with some technological innovations (such as the Multi gear system which allowed for 21 speeds) and some racing success.
The Tourist was introduced in 1935 and was soon given coupled brakes and a re-naming to the “Rapid”. For more information on this model, check out this spec list from Rudge-Whitworth.
