Brough Superior 1933 “ 11/50 “ 1096 cc side valve JAP V-twin frame # 1388 engine # LTZ/R/46709/SRF
The 1933 Brough Superior range as presented at Olympia in November 1932 consists of 680 and 986 cc OHV twins, an 800 cc Austin engined Four and the mighty side valve SS80.
“The Motor Cycle of November 3d 1932 remarks :” Always a specialist job from beginning to end, the famous side-valve S.S. 80 Brough Superior has been redesigned for 1933.
The frame is shorter, lower, and yet gives more ground clearance, while the exhaust system has been greatly improved.
A larger fuel tank has been fitted, and the primary chain now runs in a cast-aluminium oil-bath.
A new and ingenious detachable wheel has been added to the specification of this and other Brough Superior models.
The wheel has a car-type hub shell, and back, front and sidecar wheels interchange.
“ Early in 1933 the 1100 cc engine becomes available.
The JAP engine fitted is of 1935 vintage; it is rated at more than 30 HP and has a top speed of more than 90 mph.
This impressive long legged, long distance touring machine is a well-kept older restoration.
