The 680 sv Junior was introduced in January 1933 as the budget bike of the range. It was never listed as a catalogue model for the home market and was thought to be a ‘ parts bin’ special which is why the specification of the bikes produced varied so much. According to Peter Millers book Brough Superior ‘ The Complete Story’ it is estimated that only 25 examples were produced and as few as 3 are known to have survived complete.
This 680 sv replica was built in 2008 using many genuine parts housed an exact copy of an original frame. A genuine JAP 680 sv Junior engine dated 1934 was fitted with approximately 80% of original components, including gearbox, wheels, oil tank, and carburettor among others. The UK Brough club authorised a sequenced frame number and the bike has been UK registered as a 1934 Brough Superior with a current UK V5C logbook. A history file that accompanies it gives a breakdown of the build and assembly and includes correspondence from the Brough club as well as parts invoices. The previous owner a BS club member and collector for many years completed this project himself and the bike has been part of his collection ever since. Remaining in very good overall condition the bike has been used and has appeared at a few rallies, the only obvious fault is the paint lifting from the fuel tank around the filler. In good working order and ready to be used it represents extremely good value for money in the current market for a bike that is UK road registered and ready to be used.
