OHV Racing Douglas for sale!
« on: 28 Dec 2004 at 04:37 »
Hi again
I forgot to mention a friend of mine in Sydney has a Douglas machine for sale, not complete.
It is a bike that came out of a very big collection of racing bikes recently discovered, a number of racing Douglas's included.
All of the recently found racing Douggies that have seen the light of day for the first time in decades are what you would have to say are bitsa's!
That is they are a mix of OB,RA,DT,IOM & SW models.
Most of these bikes were purchased by Paddy Ryan as a job lot many years ago and Paddy was selling them off at 38.10 each. Paddy had bought them from a Speedway Promoter from Newcastle, not all Douglas's......Rudge and Jap were there too.
I would imagine they were chopped and changed around to keep them on the track...if an engine blew up another spare would be fitted and off it went.
Anyone interested to see a couple of photos of the sale bike please email me direct on
