But the new machine bearing the same name has to be one of the most exciting looking motorcycles of the modern era – and if the substance comes close to the style, then Brough owner Mark Upham has achieved the master stroke of retaining the ethos of George Brough himself.
Pictures of the new Brough arrived in the CBG dropbox literally on deadline which meant a reshuffle of the pages, in an issue that already includes the company’s record-breaking spree at Bonneville. But we make no apologies for turning this issue into a Brough Superior special.
Also in this issue are two Red Max Speed Shop street trackers – gorgeous stripped-to-the-bone Triumph specials. We also pander to the church of clip-ons and rearsets with an original Dunstall Norton and a blinged Seeley Commando. Plus, there’s a look back at the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, a cafe racer meeting in Japan and a new CBG Buyer’s Guide section – this month aimed at 650cc British twins.
