The legendary Brough Superior was known as The Rolls Royce of Motorcycles. Made famous by Laurence of Arabia, who owned several Brough's as does Jay Leno, this remarkable motorcycle was capable of reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph in the 1920's. Reflected in the tank is a rare 1925 Round Door Rolls Royce and some extremely long legs! This bike was photographed for reference photos at The Barber Museum in Birmingham AL. The first rendition of this painting had the Museum & George Barber reflected in the tank. Lawyers got involved and I had to change the painting.
The Original is in the collection of a prominent Birmingham Attorney. The irony is humorous to me as an artist. 2010
