Bonhams Announces Sensational Motorcycle Discovery

1938 Brough Superior 982cc SS100 ProjectThey were believed to have been destroyed, but earlier this year, eight long-lost Brough Superior Motorcycles were discovered in a Cornish village.

Unveiled for the first time in more than 50 years, ‘The ‘Broughs of Bodmin Moor’ will be offered at Bonhams Sale of Important Collectors’ Motorcycles at Stafford on 24 April 2016.

“This is one of the greatest motorcycle discoveries of recent times,” said Ben Walker, International Director for Bonhams Collectors’ Motorcycle Department. “A lot of mystery surrounds these motorcycles, as very few people knew that they still existed, many believing them to be an urban myth. There was a theory that they still existed somewhere in the West Country, but few knew where, until now.”

“Stored in barns for more than 50 years, the motorcycles were discovered whole, in parts, and some were partially submerged under decades of dust, old machinery parts and household clutter.”

ex- Hubert Chantrey Brough Superior 750cc BS4“This is the last known collection of unrestored Brough Superiors; there will not be another opportunity like this. Only eight four-cylinder machines were built, and the example in this collection is the final one to be re-discovered.”
