Bonhams set for Banbury Sale success
This 1921 Rudge 499cc Multi’s original owner, a Nigerian King, received it as a gift from His Majesty King George V.
 

A duo of Brough Superiors, a quadruple of Vincents, and a Nigerian King's Rudge Multi - all for sale at Bonhams June 7th Banbury Run Sale in Woodstock, Oxford.

The upcoming Banbury Run Sale is set to be a motorcycle enthusiast’s dream, with 102 lots of iconic bikes available to the highest bidder.

Within the sale, an intriguing duo of Brough Superiors will be offered for auction from a family synonymous with motorcycles for generations – Myerscough.

The motoring history behind the Myerscough family began in 1893 when Leonard Myerscough opened a business repairing and selling bicycles, followed by motorcycles and automobiles.



At the peak of this business, five locations serviced the Liverpool area under the banner L Myerscough & Sons Ltd. Encouraged by his father, the eldest son, Len Jr., took up dirt track racing in the late 1920s, enjoying success as a contracted team rider for both the Belle Vue Aces and Preston teams from 1928 to 1931.
