Video bike reviews from Bristol Show

James Robinson talks Broughs...

He starts with a look at a pair of Brough Superiors on the Bonhams stand, an SS100 and SS80.

The 1926 SS100 is powered by a JAP V-Twin and is in superb condition, with an auction estimate of between £160-200,000 — it will be auctioned at the Stafford Show in April. The other is a sidevalve JAP powered SS80, with a slightly more affordable estimate of £50-70,000.

Elsewhere James reviews a stunning 1961 Norton Dominator and explains the differences between the slimline and wideline Featherbed frames.

Ken Ashton, a partner in Vintage & Veteran, reviews a 1914 Indian Powerplus 1000cc and explains the lovely rose jointed steering, plus looks at a 1917 1000cc Harley-Davidson, which has a trick pressurised acetylene cylinder for the headlights.
