Popular Classic Douglas Motorcycles- Identification & Information

1927 Douglas SV

Info.

1927 Douglas SV

Engine Size: 348cc

Year First Manufactured: 1926

Other Info:

Gear change lever through slot in petrol tank; gearbox behind engine. First SV with gently sloping tank top. Gearbox mounts on four studs. With or without electric lighting. 

Sports version with foot pegs and aluminum pistons. Deluxe version also available. 

1936 Douglas SV Endeavour

Info.

1936 Douglas SV Endeavour

Engine Size: 496cc

Year First Manufactured: 1936

Other Info:

The only pre-war transverse twin model manufactured. Used Blue Chief (Y2) engine turned sideways with unit construction gearbox, shaft drive. Impossible to mistake for any other model! 

Total production about one hundred 1935-36. Pre-production units had oil fill for trans at top of housing, first production had oil fill at an angle on right hand side of trans, then finally oriented so fill cap was level.

1947 Douglas T35 / Mk1

Info.

1947 Douglas T35 / Mk1

Engine Size: 348cc

Year First Manufactured: 1946

Other Info:

The petrol tank has abbreviated blue panels to the fore of the knee grips and on the top as well, separated by a chromium plated swath. Early models had the chain guard attached to the sub-frame, subsequently they were attached more conventionally to the swing-arm. The front mudguard is rigidly mounted to the Radiadraulic (leading link) front fork- well up and clear of the wheel rebound- so a bit of an unsightly gap between tyre and ‘guard. 

1948 Douglas Mk2 Sports

Info.

1948 Douglas Mk2 Sports

Engine Size: 348cc

Year First Manufactured: 1948

Other Info:

Engine-wise the Mark 3 Sports (and subsequent Mark 4 Sports) versions were virtually identical to standard specifications, except that they had some pretty hairy cams almost identical to the racing Plus cams.  These Sports cams have an 'S' stamped on them between the cam lobes and with better breathing and carburetors the bike is transformed from a docile and reasonably swift plodder to a pretty interesting mount - for its day, anyway!  They were the fastest production 350cc at the time. 

1951 Douglas Mk5

Info.

1951 Douglas Mk5

Engine Size: 348cc

Year First Manufactured: 1949

Other Info:

Polychromatic blue.  Polychromatic green introduced on machine 11963 in November of 1951, then all machines after 11978 till end of Mark 5 production.  Some export bikes in different colours.  Otherwise similar in appearance to Mark 4.  Later Ferridax dual seat and Vokes oil filter optional. 

3061 produced over three years and nine months.

1955 Douglas Dragonfly

Info.

1955 Douglas Dragonfly

Engine Size: 348cc

Year First Manufactured: 1954

Other Info:

Both the engine & frame are completely different from previous models, with shrouded coil over shock dampers (not internally-mounted torsion bars) at the rear, and very distinctive Earles front forks again with the shrouded coil over shock dampers.  The tank is much larger, and is streamlined with the front lamp, which is therefore fixed, and does not turn with the forks. Enclosed top of engine, generator on front of crank.
