At least this is the price that Auctioneers Bonhams are hoping to sell a legendary Brough Superior SS100 for. The Brough Superior SS100 was the fastest bike on the market back in the 1920s. It was so revolutionary that every motorcycle had a written warranty claiming that the model in cause was capable of reaching 100mph in a quarter mile.
The motorcycle that is about to be auctioned has 78,000 miles on the clock and it sill runs as in day one. In fact the bike is running so well that it just returned from a 3000 miles trip in Wales, United Kingdom. The Brough Superior SS100 gained even more success as British archaeologist and military officer Thomas Edward Lawrence owned one. In fact hist life ended tragically when crashing his Brough Superior SS100 trying to avoid two pedestrians.
The Auction will take place on 18 October at The Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show in UK.
