All components of this machine have the ‘H’ prefix for the rare Bentley and Draper sprung frame which was identical for both 680 and 11.50 models, factory record cards show that this example has a genuine frame, number H1235 dated July 1933 and an engine, number 20137/S dated April 1930. Having been comprehensively restored between 2000 and 2012 it is finished to Black Alpine specification with the correct Castle front forks, Enfield wheels and brakes, twin head lamps and Bosh ‘Klaxen’ horn. This work was carried out by the former owner, a long term BS Club member and collector with several other Broughs in his collection.
It remains in very good general order and has been used in the last few years for BS Club events, the last in 2013. It starts easily and runs very well, the hand change 4 speed Sturmey Archer L4 gearbox is easy to work as the clutch releases and grips well. Its overall condition is very appealing as the restoration has had time mellow and give the bike a beautiful patina. It is supplied with UK registration documents and some details of the work completed.
A fabulous, rare and exotic motorcycle this is unrepeatable opportunity to acquire a Brough of this type and at this level.
