Brough sold for benefit

The top lot of Bonhams’ April Stafford sale was this 1931 Brough Superior 981cc SS100, which sold for an impressive £264,700, well above its pre-sale estimate of £170,000-220,000.

The machine sold to a bidder in the room after an intense six-way battle. The proceeds of the sale are to benefit three charities – the Search and Rescue Dog Association, the RNLI and the Salvation Army.
