The bike lacks many amenities, such as a clutch or brakes, and was designed specifically for push-start board track racing, but the 4hp V-Twin single-cylinder engine could achieve speeds of up to 100 MPH on the banked oval. According to Bonhams, which will offer the bike at its International Classic MotorCycle Show at the Staffordshire County Showgrounds in the United Kingdom, the Indian has been restored to period configuration and is expected to sell for $34,000 gu $43,000.

The first, a 1926 Brough Superior SS80/100 should gavel above $240,000.

Another Brough, this one a 1931 Superior SS80 should be a little more affordable at $75,000 gu $100,000. A rare 1921 Brough Model G is also scheduled to be sold.
