Minichamps MIN122135500 1932 Brough Superior SS 100 Motorcycle - T. E. Lawrence "Lawrence of Arabia" (1:12 Scale) "All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible."
- T. E. Lawrence

The Brough Superior SS 100 is a motorcycle which was designed and built by George Brough in Nottingham, England in 1924. Although every bike was designed to meet specific customer requirements - even the handlebars were individually shaped - sixty-nine SS100s were produced in 1925 and at 170 pounds (equivalent to 9,500 pounds in 2018) were advertised by Brough as the "Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles". The term was coined by a magazine road tester in his review of the bike, and Brough eventually obtained explicit permission to use it after a Rolls-Royce executive toured the Brough Superior factory. All bikes had a guarantee that they were capable of 100 mph (160 km/h).

The SS100 (Super Sports) was the first custom motorcycle[dubious - discuss] with components chosen from many different suppliers. The first engine (from 1924 to 1936) was the twin-cam KTOR JAP (made by J. A. Prestwich) V twin (upgraded to a Matchless engine from 1936). Gearboxes were the 4-stud 3-speed from Sturmey-Archer, with a chain drive. Brough developed the features of the Harley-Davidson forks and produced his own version (made by the Castle Fork and Accessory Company) to combine light weight with strength that was to become a feature of the SS100 handling.

Pictured here is a beautiful 1:12 scale diecast replica of a 1932 Brough Superior SS 100 Motorcycle that was ridden by T. E. Lawrence, better known as "Lawrence of Arabia". Pre-order! Ship Date: 4th Quarter 2019.
