1920's 2.75HP model.
« on: 27 Sep 2008 at 12:33 »
Good afternoon.   I'm Chris Atkins and have an enquiry regarding photographs.  A retired friend, who lives in Maidstone, Kent, has begun a new hobby of  scale motorcycles of his youth. His current need is for clear, detailed pictures of the 2.75HP model.  He describes it as being built "Somewhere around the 1920's", having the gas tank slung under the top frame member, the gearshift mounted on the tank and the drive being by leather belt/chain to the  of the rear wheel.  While he does have a computer, he has no access to the web. I only use the machines in my local library, so I apologise for any seemingly undue delay in responding to any communicant(s).  Thanks in anticipation.   Regards,   Chris.

Chris,

You will find a whole slew of 2-3/4hp Douglas pictures here on this forum. Best place to start would be in the Photo Guide to Douglas Motorcycles by Model, 1907-1926 2-3/4hp (all variants)-

http://www.douglasmotorcycles.net/index.php/board,51.0.html

Also in the Illustrated History of Douglas Motorcycles, ISBN 0-85429-799-5, there is a series of nine factory closeup pictures of a 2-3/4hp supplied to Prince Albert that may be of modeling interest.

-Doug

Thanks to both Doug and Stuart.  I'll follow their advice and pass on the information on the book.    Chris
