Watch Video of the Brough running here

Brough Superior SS80 for sale;

1935; we are advised that the machine is known to the Brough Superior Club and that whilst the frame & engine are genuine Brough units, they are not original to each other but this is very much reflected in the price; very presentable and correct looking machine; has been idle for a few years but is now running and riding although it will require some further work to make it fully functional; perfect ride with some work or fully restore machine                HELD
