Douglas Bulldog
« on: 31 Jan 2006 at 16:08 »
On a Website www.zvelebil.cz you will find the home page of Jan Zvelebil who is concerned with the Historic Vehicle Club of The Czech Republic. Click on the second menu item on the home page entitled "PRODEJ Britska vozidla". There will appear pictures of 5 British cars and 7 British motorcycles. One of these is a Douglas Bulldog. Again click on this and a further 12 photographs of details of the machine will be revealed. All of these may be enlarged by clicking on the photos. The Bulldog was also known as the C32 and was a 500cc side valve member of the "Dog" family of 1932. These comprised; Terrier (A32), Bulldog (C32), Greyhound (D32), Ayredale (E32) and Mastiff H32. For some reason, the B32, F32, K32, and the SW and DT models of that year did not as far as I know have dog names. Strangely, the Douglas Sales Catalogue for that year makes no mention of the dog names.
Perhaps Alwyn can bring these photos onto this site and edit this message to suit. Chris.

Thanks Chris for drawing our attention to this site - it's very interesting - I have asked the site owners for permission to display the 'Bulldock' photos - just hope they can translate my e-mail successfully!

Hi Chris and all,
All endeavours to contact the owner of the Bulldog photographs over time have failed. Notwithstanding, as they are of considerable interest and invaluable to our aim of preserving Douglas history in general we have in this instance taken the liberty of posting the the photos here. Nevertheless, we offer our thanks to www.zvelebil.cz for the use of them.

Should the Seller wish to have photos removed from display he is asked to please email: photos-at-douglasmotorcycles.net. (replace -at- with @) and they will be removed immediately.

Hi all,
The owner of the site that offered the Douglas Bulldog for sale, Mr Jan Zvelebil, has now granted unfettered use of photographs from his site, thanks to Chris who was able to make contact with Jan. The following e-mail was received yesterday from Chris....

Hi Alwyn
    I have finally received a reply from Jan Zvelebil. He apologises for the fact that his web site had "broken". It is now all fixed and running and he has confirmed to me that he is quite happy for you to use any of his photographs "free of charge". Regards  Chris.

Copyright for the photos should still be respected as noted above.

Alwyn
