Brough Sup galore, anyone ?

Postby Vincent.vanGinneke » Mon Dec 14, 2015 11:52 pm

The final of all Brough collections to resurface ?
Once, long ago on a Annual rally ('85 or '86 ?), I rode behind a twin rear wheel Brough, one of 8 !
I think he rode it solo.

Yes, Vincente, it belonged to Martin Emery of our Yorkshire Branch. I believe he had another one incomplete or in bits at the time.

Hello John, thanks, the name sounds familiar, did/does he have a Matchless Vtwin in a Norton frame ?
Seen him with it at a Annual when we visited Brooklands.

There is a complete and beautifully restored dual rear wheel Brough with sidecar in the Southward museum in New Zealand. Photos take in 2008 when I visited.

What I've not read anywhere or have found no report that in the Bodmin brough collection, no one mentions the brough car collapsing into the ground in the back of the picture!
