The Last Brough Superior SS100 Produced Goes Under the Hammer

The upcoming sale at Quail Lodge will be packed with goodies, as Bonhams made sure to let every know that the ultra-rare 1954 AJS E95 "Porcupine" factory racer will be joined by other extraordinary examples. Among them, the very last Brough Superior SS100 to roll off the production line.

Considered one of the greatest motorcycles ever made, and famous for consistently being the most coveted and valuable sold at auction, the SS100 was the flagship model of the bespoke English Brough Superior brand. This exclusive 1940 example – the last to come with full factory records – carries an estimate of $350,000-$400,000.

A pair of British Coventry-Eagle Flying-8 motorcycles, a 1925 SV and a 1928 OHV, has been consigned from a collection in England. Both uncommon and highly sought-after, the Flying-8 model was regarded as one of the most attractive –and most expensive– motorcycles of its time. The latter machine, one of very few known to exist, was considered a superbike of the 1920s and was a worthy rival of Brough Superior and a formidable Brooklands racer. Rarely seen on the open market, these elegant, hand-built speed machines are estimated at $100,000 and $250,000, respectively.

Yet another legendary British motorcycle marque, Vincent, will be represented by the unique Black Prince model. Described by its creator Phil Vincent as a "two-wheeled Bentley," this the 1955 Vincent Black Prince carries an estimate of $120,000-$140,000.

Additionally, a highly desirable American 1928 Henderson Deluxe Four, originally sold to South Africa, will be on offer with an estimate of $60,000-$70,000.
