The machine, a 1923 model, left the factory on October 7, 1922, sold to a Mr B S Allen of Croydon.
The machine was left to the VMCC in 2011 by a long standing VMCC member, the late David Blanchard from Bexhill on Sea. David had owned the machine since the early 1960s when he had acquired it as a ‘kit of parts.’ The SS80 underwent a full restoration during late 2011/early 2012 by Brough expert Dave Clarke.
