The Quail Motorcycle Gathering entered its 11th year recently where more than 300 of the world’s finest examples of everyone’s favorite two-wheeled means of transportation were showcased. Of those 300 motorcycles present was a special 1929 Brough Superior 680 that took home our HVA/FIVA Preservation Award.
The Brough Superior 680 was known as the baby SS-100 because of its smaller displacement engine with overhead valves that provided 80mph performance at a lighter weight and cheaper cost. One of ~547 made, this Brough Superior 680 (owned by Bryan Bossier) was made bespoke for a client of George Brough. It’s distinct feature is its red and yellow lettering ordered from factory and preserved in original condition at 90 years old.
