A British manufacturer established in 1861, BSA was at one time the world's largest motorcycle producer before going defunct in 1972. BSA was also involved in the automotive industry (dating back to 1907) and at one point owned the Daimler Company until 1960 when all automotive aspects of the company were sold to Jaguar Cars Ltd.
VINTAGE - 1921-1940 Due to the rarity of these and other years and models of Brough Superior, pricing data is still being collected. These are approximate pricing guidelines due to the fact that Brough Superior used several outside suppliers causing variations within a model line and were often built to the buyers specifications. When considering a Brough Superior purchase try to obtain as much English or American owner history on that particular motorcycle as you can. The most important item you can obtain is the "factory works card" or simply the "build sheet". This will help verify the sellers claims on the motorcycle's authenticity plus guarantee that it is factory produced and not one assembled from spare parts. Additional pricing guidelines: add $3000 for the optional b&d sprung frame all years. deduct 25-40% for an assembled non-factory built, non-numbers matching motorcycle all years. Brough superior factory was converted to war production in 1939. Post war production was planned but never realized.
