TEL himself would have surely admired this fine piece of work, well done Grampy.

I'm very pleased to see this replica of a Brough Superior. I remember my Dad enthusing over such a machine -although he never had a motor bike of any description. ( Were he still alive he would now be 116 ) so Dad - now I know what you were banging on about - and I fully agree with you!

The local paper ran a story on his creation last week, I'm very proud to see his hard work in the paper.

Fantastic replica. The last real one I saw was inside the Tank Museum at Bovington, I often wonder if it was TEL's.

I went to school on Haydn rd in Nottingham where the Brough bikes were built, but the factory moved to Vernon rd next to the Northern Baths where I learnt to swim as a kid in the sixties. although no longer building bikes the logo was on the factory signs still.
