Super Nero is one of the most iconic machines in British motorcycling history. Built by George Brown for sprinting and record attempts in the Sixties, it was powered by a supercharged Vincent V-twin engine producing an awesome 125bhp. In October 1967 Brown blasted his streamlined creation to a world standing-start mile record at 128.665mph (27.979 seconds) seconds and on Super Nero’s last successful records spree in October 1970, he attached a third wheel on a strut to raise the 1300cc sidecar flying-start mile figure to 128.234mph.
Before campaigning Super Nero, former Vincent employee Brown sprinted Nero, his un-supercharged Vincent. It set a world standing-start kilometre record at 108.735mph (19.479 seconds) in 1959. The Museum is proud to have both machines in its collection.
