1926 OC Douglas restoration finished
« on: 20 May 2010 at 14:40 »
Hello,

I have finished the restoration of my OC Douglas last weekend. I would like to thank you
for sending me technical specs and details so I was able to complete the bike.

I have added some pictures for you hereafter

PS: If someone is interrested - I have made a previous posting last year with the pictures of "before restoration"

Cheers / Martin

Martin, what a fantastic job you have done - it looks superb !! Will be interesting to see how clean the motor stays after its ridden a bit - mine gets very messy and is hard to keep clean. It looks great with the electrical system too.

A pity its so far away - would have been fun to have two OC's on the road at the same time !

Great effort Martin - the machine looks superb.
I'm interested to see that your machine not only has the electrical system fitted, but also has a centre stand. Obviously there were quite a few options on offer with this model.
Cheers, Graeme

One thing I noticed is that you have the breather directed towards the primary chain. I did this as well but found that it not only oiled the chain but the clutch as well. I redirected it to in front of the motor and just use chain lube !

Hi Ian,

thanks for the advice - I will modify this as well. I have just realised that the Douglas scottishman is missing on the primary
chainguard, I have the sticker already at home. The center stand is a later fit to the bike. No original Dougi part, but very practical.

Regards / Martin
