1920 Model W20, part wanted, trade
« on: 09 Sep 2010 at 12:21 »
G'day all
I have recently bought the remains of a 1920 W20 Douglas.
The engine that came with it is much later (1924) although there is a W20 timing cover with it.
Also the gearbox is from a later TS (LG prefix).
I am on the lookout for the correct engine and gearbox for this bike.....any help would be appreciated.
If all else fails I suppose it will only be noticeable to a Douglas enthusiast that all is not correct!
Frame No 44847 and after the number RR in small stampings....would this indicate the frame builders identity?
This bike had a lot of work done nearly 40 years ago and has been sitting in the dark all this time....good job too because the owner fitted new Dunlop's to it all those years ago and they are perfect still...comes with new JP pistons and new front brake castings from the LDMCC as well as some spares.
I notice a small peg poking out at the top of the rear stand on the timing side.....what is it for.....Is it for a return spring?

Howard, we are doing a TS for my 13yo son at the moment - and I think its a 1920 gearbox we have - will check and get back to you - we would have to do a swap !!

G'day Ian and all
Sounds like a good idea!
Are the correct handlebar levers available anywhere, does the club sell them (would they have any other bits for the W20?)
I am fairly keen to obtain the missing bits for this bike....if anyone has anything at all please contact me.
The bike came with quite a few spares all of which are later models (1924/1926), frames, forks, tanks, motors including a 1914 model (don't ask it is already spoken for) and a million small bits all of which are available as swaps only to complete the W20.
I have attached a couple of photos showing only some of the spares.
Howard.

Hi Howard
At present the club does not hold the handlebar levers, but are looking into prices etc, to see if it is worth having a batch made.

There is a thread on the Parts For Sale board of replica brake / exhaust-valve levers.  I bought a set and they seem appropriate for my TS 24 but need to be finished (nickle plated etc).
