Bonhams sells two basket-case Brough Superiors for record-breaking £500k

At its Autumn Stafford Sale last weekend, Bonhams realised two extraordinary results for two ‘basket-case’ motorcycles – both a 1926 and a 1927 Brough Superior SS100 Alpine Grand Sport ‘project’, which fetched (inclusive of buyer’s premium) £236,700 and £259,100, respectively…

The two-day sale made £3.6m all-in, making it the highest grossing motorcycle sale ever seen in Europe. Of that figure, £1.3m was generated from the sale of the 60-bike Lonati Collection the preceding day. The great British motorcycle marque Brough Superior truly excelled in the sale’s second day, with the two aforementioned ‘basket-case’ projects selling extremely well, as well as the 1937 Olympia Motorcycle Show-starring SS100, which made £208,700. Another bike which we recently featured, the famous Münch Mammut, made a healthy £85,500.
