Eddie Meyer

Eddie Meyer was a racing motorcyclist who gained fame in the early 20th century as a rider of Brough Superior motorcycles. He was born in 1898 in London and developed an early interest in motorcycles. Meyer began racing in the mid-1920s and quickly established himself as a talented rider.

Eddie Meyer and his brother Kent moved to Vienna to set up a motorcycle agency dealing with Brough Superior. Both were successful competitors in trials and speed events and their enthusiasm for the brand led to more sales of motorcycles in Austria than any other country other than the United Kingdom.

He became closely associated with the Brough Superior brand and rode their motorcycles in many races.
He passed away in 1969 at the age of 70, but his legacy as a pioneering racing motorcyclist and ambassador for Brough Superior motorcycles lives on.
