A 1938 Brough Superior motorcycle has set a new world record for British motorcycle after being sold for £331,900 (3.2 crore approx) to a German collector. This 800cc BS4 was less than mint condition, and also one of the eight bike found in Cornwall Barn. Together, all eight bikes were sold for a total of £752,625(7.5 crore approx). 

Ben Walker, International Director for Bonhams Collectors' Motorcycle Department, said: "The Broughs of Bodmin Moor are the motorcycle discovery of the decade. They've caused quite a stir in the saleroom, with each one far exceeding estimate, allowing us to break our own world record for a British motorcycle sold at auction, the 1938 Brough Superior 750cc BS4 selling for £331,900 to a German bidder in the room."


"Having been housed in a Cornwall barn for so many decades, we're delighted to have brought these machines back into the spotlight," said Jonathan Vickers, Bonhams West Country motoring specialist.
