“S.S. 80 Special” and “S.S.80 Deluxe”
|THE NEW “S.S.80 SPECIAL” SPECIFICATION
Despite the price at which the "S.S.80 Special" is marketed, I am prepared to guarantee the materials and workmanship throughout this machine to be identical with the remainder of the Brough Superior range, and also justify what "The Motor Cycle" said of the original S.S. 80 model : "The Rolls-Royce of Motor Cycles". It was designed at the request of a large number of B.S. riders, who favour a reliable, silent, side-by-side valve twin, with a performance and price equal to that of the ultra-high-compression O.H.V. single. Experienced riders tell me that this "S.S. 80" is the most charming thing they have ever sat across.
Engine. 50o "V" Twin, 990
c.c., fitted with big side valves, totally enclosed and automatically lubricated,
oversize roller and ball-bearings throughout, detachable cylinder heads,
and full dry-sump lubrication to all moving parts. The engine can be decarbonised
and rear wheel driven illuminated speedometer. Lodge Plugs and Licence
Holder are fitted as standard to this machine, and the wheel base, saddle
height and ground clearance are exactly the same as the "11.50 Special."
(As illustrated on page 4)
The "S.S. 80" is positively the quietest motor cycle on the road. The way it eats up the mileage with absolute absence of effort makes long journeys a thrill and a pleasure.
