I need a front axle and associated cones, nuts spacers etc as I have a wheel with bare hub only, not even a grease nipple, and need all the bits to mount the wheel. If anyone has a drawing of how it goes together that would help. Does the right hand thread side of the hub go on the left side of the bike when looking at it from sitting on the bike?

I also need the handlevers as I have bare handlebars only, and the mechanicm for the front brake. Again a picture of these parts would be helpful.

Hoping someone can assist.

Russell,

Found this drawing of a 1923 Model W front hub which may be similar to your 1925 TS.

In the Model W manual, it says

"The hub lock ring should always be fitted to the left-hand side of the forks, seen from the saddle, as in this position the motion of wheel tends to tighten the cup. On no account fail to observe this, otherwsie the hub may come adrift."

and

"All Douglas hubs since 1913 contain 5/16" balls and the adjusting cups and lock rings are left hand threads."

Hope this helps

Dave

Thanks Dave.
At least I know now what to look for. That certainly looks more like what should be there than the skinny bolt and bit of waterpipe spacer it had in it when I got it.
