HVA/FIVA Preservation Trophy Awarded at 2019 Quail Motorcycle Gathering

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.
