VICTORY ON THE SALT
Brough Superior has returned. The most legendary of motorcycles—which, despite all its glamour, gentlemanly refinement, and, yes, cost, is, at its heart, a raw missile—has triumphantly honored its bloodline by setting a new speed record at the hallowed Bonneville Salt Flats.

Try getting your inside leg measured for this one. American purveyor of “clothing of style & substance”, Bench & Loom, is offering one of the new, highly sought-after Brough Superior motorcycles alongside its hip men’s threads.

Brough Superior is probably the most legendary name in motorcycle history. The hand-made British speed machines were famously called “The Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles” due to their exquisite craftsmanship and premium price, although “The Bentley of Motorcycles” may have been a better comparison since Brough Superior won races and set speed records with astounding frequency.
Now back in production, Brough Superior is again creating – in highly limited numbers –bespoke motorcycles with all the lustful aesthetics of their 1930s brethren..................
MEN'S REVERIE "Brough Superior. La Rolls delle due ruote, è tornata"
Nel 1927 Thomas Edward Lawrence (meglio noto come Lawrence d’Arabia), diede luogo a una competizione davvero originale, che oggi non sfigurerebbe nel programma televisivo Top Gear. Lawrence sfidò un biplano da caccia Bristol in sella a quello che all’epoca era considerato un autentico prodigio di tecnologia..............

Prepared over the last nine months by Brough’s chief engineer and designer Alastair Gibson [in his Brackley, Northants, workshop] the un-streamlined vintage Brough, running on pump gasoline, was ridden exclusively by 65-year old Eric Patterson, a former 120 mph record breaker....................
Brough Breaks Bonneville Record

BROUGH AT BONNEVILLE
Fully 62 years later, a factory-backed speed record attempt by Brough Superior coalesced on the vast white plain of the Bonneville Salt Flats. The Brough name has been in continuous usage since George Brough himself last assembled a motorcycle in the late 1940s; GB maintained an engineering works for years, then sold the name to new owners, who each hoped to resume production of the grandest name in motorcycling. I was standing with Mark Upham the day his own Brough lightbulb lit up.............

Articel: The National Feb 20, 2011 written by Josh Sims
From gaudy, skintight rally leathers to chic shearling jackets, biker style has been perennially popular for fashion-conscious men. But a recent revival of interest in classic vintage bikes and modern replicas has boosted interest in retro biker fashions to match - and modern technology means they work both on and off the road.
"The retro bike scene is a growing sub-culture that is part of the same non-conformist interest in vintage clothing," reckons Mark Upham, the new owner of Brough, which hand-makes exact bespoke replicas, at a rate of five a year, of the 1927 Brough Superior, notoriously the bike on which Lawrence of Arabia was killed in 1935 (swerving to avoid a pedestrian, an accident that led to the introduction of the first motorcycle helmets). ..........read more follow the link

Men's file photo shoot, Paris
It seemed an excellent opportunity: the confluence of the Men's File crew, a sunny day in Paris, and a million dollars' worth of Brough Superiors. Nick Clements had brought two models (Spirit of Britain's Simon Delaney and friend) along for atmosphere at the Ralph Lauren/Men's File party the night prior, so we had gents in period dress, motorcycles, and a picturesque spot on the Seine, on the quai under Pont Sully, relatively free of perambulators and bicyclists, and nearly devoid of modern vehicles, having in one direction only the river, the 1800s buildings of Paris, and a series of river barges which a few hardy souls call home. ..........
Men's file Party at Ralph Lauren
While best known in the motoring world for his collection of exquisite cars, Ralph Lauren is one savvy character, and it's merely a matter of time before we see his silver-haired visage at Pebble Beach, standing beside some outrageous two-wheeled acquisition. The only speculation will be, 'which bike?'... and judging by the recent Men's File magazine party at the flagship RL store on Boulevard St. Germain in Paris, I have a pretty good guess what his first purchase might look like. ......
