    Because Lawrence owned it does this make it a Boanerges ? which is what he called at least one of his Broughs
    Boanerges has a number of biblical references but he used the “Sons of thunder” definition.

    Beautiful MotorCycles, nothing comes close in my mind and the modern copy does nothing for me in comparison

    Me. I like ‘George III’, the 1924 Brough as seen on Poole Quay’s bike night during the summer.
    if one of George Broughs ‘Broughs’ goes for £245000 how much it that now worth?….
    I like seeing Graham RIDING it around Dorset… he doesn’t care what its worth he likes it as a classic bike although its probably now part of his pension fund

    The term “Legend” has always been a bit over used in this industry
    This cycle truly deserves the term
    Yes, it is WAYY out of my price range
    but the fact that it exists & that someone wanted it (for good or ill)
    that much to pay that kind of price for it
    All I can say is Wow !!! and good for them
