Brough's most famous customer T.E. Lawrence "Lawrence of Arabia"
Lawrence owned eight Broughs:
1922: Boa (short for Boanerges)
1923: George I (£150 was more than the price of a house)
1924: George II
1925: George III
1926: George IV
1927: George V (RK 4907; see photo)
1929: George VI (UL 656)
1932: George VII (GW 2275) (the bike he died riding)
Undelivered: George VIII (still being built when Lawrence was killed).
This was still being raced in 2003-4 when I worked at St Joe HD. I rode it once, it was terrifying... The guy who actually rode this thing up the hill was one of our mechanics, his name was Rooster. He won a whole slew of first place trophies on this beast.
