EW350 Transfers
« on: 23 Sep 2008 at 10:26 »
Hello,

Just a simple question... I've just recieved 2x transfers from London to put on my bike. I 've been told one goes on the steering head and the other on the rear mudguard. Could somebody with the transfers on their bike please show me exactly where I need to put them?

Thanks very much,

Trace

Thanks Roy. David's done a wonderful job. It's nice now to just be sorting out the simple things like transfers. I'm looking forward to LOTS of riding.

Unfortunately it's not looking good for me. My sister's having an engagement party on the Sunday and a no show from me would not go down to well.

You may want to double check with the LDMCC transfer scheme. Some of the older info I have suggests that both the headstock and the rear mudguard used a gold "Scots" and that the full color headstock was just used on earlier machines.

As for taking the EW to the rally, I think that would have to be the necessary conclusion to this saga. Priorities, right? In this day and age folk get married several times; tell the sister you will attend her next engagement party!  :)

Doug,
According to the VMCC transfer records, the Gold Scotsman was on the rear mudguard from 1913 - 1954 and the Coloured Scotsman was used on the headstock and elsware from 1924 - 1932.

Roy,

A VMCC member gave me a printout of the transfer list as pertaining to Douglas because I needed to get some of the 'use the clutch' transfer for the frame that the LDMCC does not carry, and I found the descriptions a bit confussing. So I did not entirely trust that source; though the library/archives at Allen House are an excellent reference for original literature and periodicals. The descriptions for the transfers and the applicability I got from Part One of the Douglas Range by Doug Frost. That was published quite a while ago (and of course could be wrong) and new information may have come to light. Hence the recommendation to check with LDMCC regalia.

I think an article on transfers and which models they go on would be overdue in the NCR and/or here on the forum.

Hello,

I've been sent 2x gold colored transfers from London, one for rear guard and one for steering head. I also got one for the chaincase. There wasn't any mention of a colored one , so I hope what I have is right.

Re the engagement party...I AGREE! Years ago I was in London when another sister was married and I didn't come back, didn't go down too well. Incidentally, that marriage didn't last.

Trace,
As long as you have them in the correct position I don't think it matters which transfer you use, I did check with Classic Transfers a renown supplier of motorcycle transfers and they say the same as the VMCC.
Keep at it.

Hi Gentlemen,
Just jumping in on the topic. I just received my transfers from the London Club and I am not quite sure I ordered the correct tank transfers.I ordered #11 Douglas in white with black edges.Is that correct for a 1927 EW350? They seem small to me. What are the transfers listed under #8 for Douglas veteran like?
Best,
Bob

Bob,
Have posted photo of 1927 EW tank, I think the ones you have are incorrect, not sure where you will be able to get any as I have checked other transfer suppliers with no luck.
Any good at sign writing !!!!!!!?
Roy.

I have finally held my tank transfers from the London Club against the transfers on my 350EW. They are slightly smaller but are certainly better than what's on there. I think the size difference comes from the spacing between the letters. The overall length is about 5/16 of an inch shorter, letter height is approximately the same.
Thanks for everyones input.
Bob
