saw this article in a local -Australia-motorcycle paper:

Morgan and Wacker , established in 1917. is still going - but celebrating being the second oldest  Harley dealership in  the world some time in May this year -(presumeably still need to be operating to qualify for the title).

 EDIT - weirdly the web link article only mentions that they are the oldest HD in aust and oldest outside USA -but the magazine only says second oldest HD in world - presumably all correct ....

anyhow ,
nothing douglas in the article , but here it is:

but i noticed the photo of the  early shop has them as 'Agents for the Douglas motor cycles'



picked a winner being also agents for HD though..

also see another photo of wacker himself and a douglas rider in this thread here:
