Interwar superbike to sell for up to 240000

Rare 1936 Brough Superior goes under the hammer

Interwar superbike to sell for up to 240000



A RARE Brough Superior SS100 first shown in 1936 is expected to make up to £240,000 when it goes under the hammer.

Auctioneers Bonhams are selling this Matchless-engined SS100, which was displayed on the Brough stand at the 1936 Motorcycle Show at Earls Court.

Incredibly - despite its quarter of a million pound valuation - this bike is not only still running but has been recently used for 3,000 miles of touring, including a jaunt around Wales. In total the bike has 78,000 miles on the clock.

These British-built superbikes came with a written guarantee that every machine that left the factory had been timed at over 100mph for a quarter of a mile.

Of course these bikes weren't the toys for the common folk, back in 1925 (when the SS100 first went on sale) it cost £170 - it might sound cheap, but in today's money that's closer to £9,000. But perhaps that's not bad value compared to the Honda RC213VS.

The bike comes with lots of recent paperwork (including its recent £4,300 rebuild), the earliest records stretch back to 1957 when it was fitted to a sidecar.

For those looking to place a cheeky bid then the Bonhams Autumn Stafford Sale takes place on 18 October at The Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, Staffordshire County Showground.

Have a look at some of the other rare and classic bikes in the sale.
