This looks exactly the same as the frame on my 80 Plus,  including front brakes, brake reaction link mountings etc.

However, if you produce the frame number (which should be on the side of the steering head bracket) the LDMCC, and no doubt others, can say for sure.  Maybe even date of manufacture and dealer it was delivered to.

Well, they are Plus model rear and front wheel hubs, As are the front forks. Something odd about the front brake backing plate, it should be ventilated? It has the 'doubled-up' rear brake pedal pad as used on later Mark series as well as the Plus series. The frame is harder to identify lacking the code. They are different, the swingarm lug is cut back/narrower to clear the larger sprockets and chain used on the Plus series. Possibly there are other differences visible.

Hm mm... I cant see any difference between that front brake and mine.  I can see the pattern of small round holes where the air comes out (at about the 5 o'clock position)  and I can see the small rectangular hole where the little cast scoop bolts on at about the 10 o'clock position.

Confirmation of machine with number 10230 taken from original Douglas factory despatch records. This bike was a Plus 80 model sent to A.B.Motors, of Sweden on 8th March 1951.  Reg.
