Bonhams discovered a treasure trove of eight, rare Brough Superior motorcycles that were hiding in barns in a UK village. This collection is the last known group of unrestored examples in the world, and they go up for auction in 2016.
Jay Leno might have a massive collection of treasured vehicles, but there are some favorites in there. This week on Jay Leno's Garage, he takes a ride on one of them – a 1925 Brough Superior SS100. These bikes were among the premiere motorcycles of their day and were certified to hit 100 miles per hour. Leno even put a drop of his own blood into the cycle's tank to strengthen their bond.
Jay Leno takes viewers on a tour of over a dozen projects currently happening in his garage in this video. The work spans the breadth of the automotive hobby, including a restoration of a 1969 Lamborghini Espada, a Ford Bronco waiting for a Coyote V8, several Panhards in various states of repair and a freshly completed Brough Superior motorcycle waiting for a ride.
For the first time in its nearly 60-year history, this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance will feature classic motorcycles alongside the drool-worthy classic cars on display at the hallowed 18th hole fairway. Kicking off what is expected to be an annual focus on different countries and eras, this year's display will highlight classic British bikes built until 1959.
