1937 Brough Superior SS80 and sidecar

In 1919 George Brough left his father's motorcycle firm to set up on his own making V twin engined machines in competition with him.

Naming his bikes Brough Superior left the public in no doubt as to which were the better machines, in George's eyes at least.  The Brough works in Nottingham produced bikes with mainly JAP and Matchless engines until 1940 and earned the title 'Rolls Royce of Motorcycles'.  After the end of motorcycle production the company continued in business as a precision engineer.
