Rare British Motorcycle – Brough

Brough Motorcycles were made by William E. Brough in Nottingham, England, from 1908 to 1926. Brough motorcycles were flat-tanked motorcycles that used a variety of engines. The first Brough motorcycles had single-cylinder engines but soon William Brough became devoted to the flat-twin engine design.

¬†Originally William Brough’s son, George Brough, was a partner in his father’s company, but he split from it in 1919 and started his own factory, also in Nottingham. He named his motorcycles “Brough Superior”. Upon hearing the name of the new motorcycle company, his father made the comment, “I suppose that makes mine the Brough Inferior”.
