Pendine Sands is one of the most evocative names in the annals of British motorcycle history. In the 1920s the seven-mile (11 km) beach on the south coast of Wales hosted the Welsh TT races and no less than five successful land speed record attempts.

A few days ago, the beach was abuzz once more with the sound of engines. It was the occasion of the revitalized Pendine Speed Trials, and one of the most interesting vehicles there was this ‘new’ Brough Superior SS101 ‘Pendine’.

The resurrected Brough Superior comes full circle with a new record at Bonneville Salt Flats.

Brough Superior has returned. The most legendary of motorcycles—which, despite all its glamour, gentlemanly refinement, and, yes, cost, is, at its heart, a raw missile—has triumphantly honored its bloodline by setting a new speed record at the hallowed Bonneville Salt Flats.

Brough Superior is probably the most legendary name in motorcycle history. The hand-made British speed machines were famously called “The Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles” due to their exquisite craftsmanship and premium price, although “The Bentley of Motorcycles” may have been a better comparison since Brough Superior won races and set speed records with astounding frequency.

Now back in production, Brough Superior is again creating – in highly limited numbers –bespoke motorcycles with all the lustful aesthetics of their 1930s brethren..................

Brough Breaks Bonneville Record

by Richard Backus

The specially constructed 1,100cc SS model Brough Superior completed two opposite-direction runs through the measured mile at Bonneville Salt Flats on September 1, 2011, at a mean average speed of 124.98 mph, breaking the AMA 1350-A-VG Speed Record established by a 1350cc Indian in 2005 at 114 mph! 






Fully 62 years later, a factory-backed speed record attempt by Brough Superior coalesced on the vast white plain of the Bonneville Salt Flats.  The Brough name has been in continuous usage since George Brough himself last assembled a motorcycle in the late 1940s; GB maintained an engineering works for years, then sold the name to new owners, who each hoped to resume production of the grandest name in motorcycling.  I was standing with Mark Upham the day his own Brough lightbulb lit up.............

Biker fashion

Articel: The National  Feb 20, 2011  written by Josh Sims

From gaudy, skintight rally leathers to chic shearling jackets, biker style has been perennially popular for fashion-conscious men. But a recent revival of interest in classic vintage bikes and modern replicas has boosted interest in retro biker fashions to match - and modern technology means they work both on and off the road.

"The retro bike scene is a growing sub-culture that is part of the same non-conformist interest in vintage clothing," reckons Mark Upham, the new owner of Brough, which hand-makes exact bespoke replicas, at a rate of five a year, of the 1927 Brough Superior, notoriously the bike on which Lawrence of Arabia was killed in 1935 (swerving to avoid a pedestrian, an accident that led to the introduction of the first motorcycle helmets). more follow the link

Brough back at Bonneville

Mark Upham CEO of Brough Superior Motorcycles Ltd is delighted to announce the firm will be contesting Bonneville Speed Week next year with a new machine based on the existing 1927 SS100 Pendine model which was first unveiled at Pebble Beach in August 2009. The machine will be known as the Brough Superior SS100 Retroit will be running on pump fuel un-streamlined.  Design  style and construction will be the direct responsibility of Alastair Gibson formerly chief mechanic for Honda Formula Oneand lifelong 2-wheel enthusiast. After a quarter century working for several Champions in F1 Alastair now works from his own design studio near Oxford.  “When Mark approached me with the idea of a “Retro” machine for Bonneville I was immediately fired up I know the extent of the challenge having previously been deeply involved on the salt in 2006 with the Honda F1 car that broke the existing record for the category!”  
The motivation for this exciting project comes from Mark Upham himself who confirms that the project is to be funded by Brough Superior Motorcycles Ltd. In anticipating the machine’s final completion and testing by July it is then intended the “Retro” will be despatched to Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage in Los Angeles where after re-assemblyit will be shown for the first time.  The “Retro” will be displayed at Ralph Lauren in Los Angeles on the 24th of August, prior to shipment to the Bonneville Salt Flats towards the end of that month. The “Retro” machine’s progress can be followed on the firm’s website:
Mark Upham says“Alastair has been helping us for the past two years I am therefore delighted to have him so closely involved with the “Retro” project which effectively is Brough Superior’s first return to Bonneville after an absence of 60 years!”


Men's file photo shoot, Paris

It seemed an excellent opportunity: the confluence of the Men's File crew, a sunny day in Paris, and a million dollars' worth of Brough SuperiorsNick Clements had brought two models (Spirit of Britain's Simon Delaney and friend) along for atmosphere at the Ralph Lauren/Men's File party the night prior, so we had gents in period dress, motorcycles, and a picturesque spot on the Seine, on the quai under Pont Sully, relatively free of perambulators and bicyclists, and nearly devoid of modern vehicles, having in one direction only the river, the 1800s buildings of Paris, and a series of river barges which a few hardy souls call home. ..........


Men's file Party at Ralph Lauren

While best known in the motoring world for his collection of exquisite cars, Ralph Lauren is one savvy character, and it's merely a matter of time before we see his silver-haired visage at Pebble Beach, standing beside some outrageous two-wheeled acquisition. The only speculation will be, 'which bike?'... and judging by the recent Men's File magazine party at the flagship RL store on Boulevard St. Germain in Paris, I have a pretty good guess what his first purchase might look like. ......
