True to my promise, I sold the bike to Jeff for the same price I’d paid for it one year later, after he’d saved up the money. If I only knew then… “Our Brough” wasn’t just any old SS100, but once belonged to George Brough himself! Factory records reveal EAU 31, bearing chassis #1662 and engine #1008, as the eighth Matchless-motored SS100 built. This bike was delivered on October 2, 1937, to the Brough Superior dealer in Norwich as “ex-Mr. Brough.” George Brough registered an example of each new model upon introduction, riding it himself to troubleshoot any problems. This was his testbike.
