The first Douglas was manufactured in Bristol, UK in the early 1900's & stayed in business until 1957 when they were bought out by The Westinghouse Brake & Signal Co.

Although production of Douglas motorcycles ceased in the 1950's there are still many machines and parts available. If you do not find what you are looking for through Ebay, other suggestions we would make are that you contact one of the several owners clubs worldwide for help & advice and / or place an ad in our Wanted & For Sale section further down the page.

1927 Douglas SV

Engine Size: 348cc

First Produced: 1926

1927 Douglas SV

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

Engines: 496cc

First Produced: 1936

1936 Douglas SV Endeavour

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 / Mk.1

Engine Size: 348cc

First Produced: 1946

1947 Douglas T35 / Mk1

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 Mk.2 Sports

Engine: 348cc

First Produced: 1948

1948 Douglas Mk2 Sports

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 Mk.5

Engine: 348cc

First Produced: 1949

1951 Douglas Mk5

Originally all 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

Engine: 348cc

First Produced: 1954

1955 Douglas Dragonfly

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.
