Product Description

Douglas Motorcycling 1907-2007 paper back

Douglas, a foundry company in Bristol, found itself going into the production of a motorised bicycle, to become known as the motorcycle. A customer of the company, Joseph Barter, who joined Douglas in 1907, brought with him the horizontally-opposed twin engine configuration, which with one exception was the easily recognised principle of all Douglas models, giving a low centre of gravity and fairly vibrationless motor.
The year of 2007 marks one hundred years of Douglas motor cycling. Many of the machines the company made have gone down the road of recycling, but there are many that have survived to satisfy those enthusiasts who regard the Douglas marque as special.

This booklet is produced for the Centenary and photographically features some events and achievements in Douglas progress and into the activities of the London Douglas Motor Cycle Club whose members continue to keep the Douglas machine alive.
