Australian seeks a few words of advice re buying a Douglas

Hi, my name is Steve and I'd like to fulfil a lifetime ambition and buy a Douglas. I'm wondering whether anyone would be prepared to have a brief chat on the phone (at my expense) about Douglas motorcycles in general/values etc. Or is there a club somewhere that I can join?

Any assistance very much appreciated.

Help needed to identify this model Douglas

I was wondering if anybody has any idea what year & model this bike is?
My father is in the process of restoring the bike at the moment and any clues might make it easier to find similar parts. We suspect it may be a TS350 and around the 1926 vintage.

Thanks Glenn

Can you help identify this early Douglas?

Sirs, I own a Douglas of unknown vintage and model. I have had this cycle for many years in an unrestored and unassembled condition. It is circa mid teens or early twenties. There are some numbers on the frame and crank case.
They are frame # 637321 with the smaller 3 numeral as shown also a four digit number 1050 on the upper saddle tube clamp area which I am told was plugged at the factory. Engine # 65854 on the opposite case to the 1911 number.
Hoping this will help further in my inquiries.

Yours in anticipation, Alan Long,

My Dad's 1947 Douglas

Good day, I was wondering if someone could help me. My Dad bought a brand new 350cc Douglas before meeting my Mum which would be late 1940's. My Mum unfortunatley can not remember the model but says it had a full seat unit and not a single + pad. She feels it was more like the Mk3 than the Mk4. Was the bike available with a full seat? Could it have been adapted ? Obviously asking my Dad is not an option as Doris Stokes is up there too so any help / photo's would be appreciated.

Many thanks, Dave Flooks, Liverpool UK

Anyone identify this Douglas for my book?

I've got this photo which I'm using in the book I'm writing, and need to identify the approximate year of the machine. The photo was taken in 1931, in the yard at Cunningham's Camp while our Club members were at the Manx and that's about all I know. Can anyone help?

Can anyone identify this motorbike?

I'm currently preparing a book on the French photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue. In 1912 he took some photographs of what is believed to be the Paris-Tours motorcycle race. I would like to use one of these photographs in my book, and am trying to identify the motorbike in it. A French correspondent has said that he's sure it's a Douglas but can offer no more help. Can anyone there offer any further information - bike, rider, race - anything?

I attach a detail from the photograph showing the motorbike. Any and all information very gratefully received.

Regards Bill

Photos to identify 1931 Douglas A31

I need some help, where to find reasonable photo of Douglas A31 1931. I have one... but I'm not sure it is an A31. I saw a poor photo of A31 Douglas in Old Bike Mart and I think its pretty much the same. Only I know it's Douglas from 1931 and probably 350cc. So I need photos of it to recognize and to make inventory what is missing. It looking pretty much like this.

kind regards, Joni Kakko, Finland

Front Forks

I'm looking for a pair of Velocette 350/500 Webb forks, without much luck.

Somebody (who lives quite a distance away) sent a very bad photo, from which I can see nothing, saying the forks were off a sv 600cc Aero Douglas, and that he thought they were Webb. Anyone have any ideas?

Douglas Brakes

I'm rebuilding a 1927 EW and was talking to a fellow owner today. He has stopped riding his as he is afraid of the poor brakes, especially the front. His view is you couldn't lock the wheel on wet ice!
Now I 'm worried. Is there a way of setting up or modifying the brakes to give an adequate performance? Can a Rudge 8" or similar brakeplate be inserted to give better performance?
Would like some comments or suggestions.
Don't the 500, 600 and 750cc bikes have virtually the same brake? Surely this means that you can get an adequate performance from the Douglas item?

Drive Belt for 1920 2-3/4hp Douglas

I have a 1920 2-3/4 hp Douglas that is an absolute pleasure to ride.Trouble is, it has chewed up the original belt that was on it (which was fairly old) and I have tried a couple of alternatives without success.
Can anyone recommend something that actually works?
Also, does anyone have spare leather carrier bags for sale?

Best wishes to all Douglas enthusiasts.

I am just starting to rebuild a 1927 EW 350cc model. First problem I can see is replacing the 25x3 beaded edge tyres. As far as I can see they just ain't available. As the wheels will need to be rebuilt, do I fit wired-on tyres or can you tell me where these tyres can be found.

Any Idea what "LE" means?

I happen to live in the house that Douglas owned for almost 40 years in Saltford between Bath and Bristol. It's called Uplands House.

When we bought it, set into one of the fireplaces, was a fairly massive piece of cast iron decorative plate (the sort you used to see on the front of locomotive engines).

The person we bought the house from, who had bought it from the person who had in turn bought from Douglas, said it had come from Douglas's factory when it closed down.

I'm not sure this can be true since it is marked in 4 inch letters LE and above that 1954 and I thought the factory had closed by then. Can anyone shed any light? Happy to post a photo if that would help.

Regards, David W Smith, Uplands, The Glen, Saltford, UK
