Brough Superior motorcycles are rare – and finding a few 1920s Brough Superior bikes for sale is impossible. Not really, though, considering a few extremely rare 1920s Brough Superior motorcycles will be on the block at Bonhams annual Stafford sale at The Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show October 18.

The Bonhams Stafford show will feature a few SS100s, including a 1926 Brough Superior 980cc SS100 Alpine Grand Sport, dismantled and offered for restoration, which is estimated to be worth £120,000-160,000. Also on the block will be a a 1936 Earls Court Motorcycle Show Brough Superior 990cc SS100, estimate £210,000-240,000.

Bonhams says further highlights include a series of motorcycle projects, carefully assembled and preserved over the past 40 years. Collected by Sydney-based enthusiast Gary Ross, the lots include three Brough Superior motorcycles: a 1926 Brough Superior 980cc SS100 Alpine Grand Sport project, estimate £120,000-160,000, a 1927 Brough Superior 980cc SS100 Alpine Grand Sport project, estimate £120,000-160,000, and a 1931 Brough Superior OHV 680 project, estimate £15,000-20,000.

“This year’s Autumn Stafford sale features an extraordinary selection of mighty Brough Superior motorcycles,” said Ben Walker, International Director for Bonhams Collectors’ Motorcycles.

“We’ve flown the fantastic Sydney based motorcycles some 9,000 miles to be in the Bonhams sale. The late-owner was an enthusiast and a true connoisseur, and we are delighted to be offering for sale these tremendous projects – it is an unprecedented opportunity for motorcycle collectors.

“Leading the sale is the beautifully preserved 1936 Earls Court Motorcycle Show Brough Superior 990cc SS100, estimated at £210,000-240,000. Presented in excellent working order, it received extensive mechanical refurbishment in 2013, whilst maintaining its beautiful patina, and has been used by both the current and previous owner on touring trips around England and Wales.”
