What was the bike that "Lawerence of Arabia" owned?

A Brough Superior of course.

Thanks to an alert reader!

Hi there! Thanks for a brilliant site.

I was walking around the Imperial War Museum in London yesterday and came across Lawrence of Arabia's SS100 Brough Superior. I'm not sure that it's suitable for the site, but I thought you'd like it. Lawrence owned eight of these beauties and they were all called George!

Thanks again
Jezza

  1. Some of the most beautiful (and most expensive) bike ever made. They were well ahead of their time.
    Sir Lawrence died riding one.
