Congratulations on the sale!

Congratulations

Thank you Sunil. Not sure what the congratulations are for, but thanks. By the way, your SKC 0220 and SKC 3281 are wonderful captures...

Congratulations!

I guess T.E. Lawrence was trying to dis-prove George Brough's claim that every SS 100 could attain 100 mph without modification - at least on British country roads.

Voted for this even though we in same contest. Excellent work.

Agreed, probably the most historically famous two wheeled machine ever produced. Lawrence of Arabia. And sheer ahead of it's time speed.

One of the better artistic drawings of this fine classic Well done!

Norman Bean replied:

I did enjoy this particular moto. I saw it on a Sunday afternoon in June 08'. The owner had been riding in the Tuscan hills between Pisa and Lucca with a large group of antique cars and motorcycles. I became more interested in creating a drawing when, in the research process, I saw that Jay Leno owned a 39' SS100, and had produced a U-tube video touting it's restoration, then starting it up and taking it for a ride. My day job is restoring antique Harleys, but this, what a cool project that would make.....
