World record broken

There was a new world record of £425,500 for a Brough-Superior SS100 established at H&H’s auction at the National Motorcycle Museum on March 2.

The subject SS100 was owned and ridden by F P ‘Gentleman’ Dickson in the 1920s.

The Brough as it stood at the time of sale.

Dickson was George Brough’s closest friend and they entered many events together as the Brough factory team.


In 1930, F P Dickson rode this bike, TV 2001, in the ISDT in Switzerland along with George Brough and Eddy Meyer as the Brough team.
