I remember reading that TE Lawrence's bike was lost in the depths of time but he was known to put a florin ( old English coin worth 2 shillings) under the fuel cap.
Apparently every Brough SAuperior that's offered for sale has a florin under the cap to convince the buyer it was the original Lawrence bike :)
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
