I think I had better go !! May find the lever I need (or another bike  :twisted: ). Any idea as to the model Douglas ? Is it a CW ?

It certainly looks like a CW Ian - can't see a belt rim on the back wheel, and it looks like a flywheel clutch. No clue as to what the other Douglas is - hidden under a sheet in the background. The veteran pictured doesn't look like a Triumph - the wrong forks(?) at least, and the ad mentions fully restored. Looks pretty complete though. Could be an interesting sale.

I got the catalogue for this auction yesterday - unbelievable amount of stuff for veteran and vintage cars and quite a bit of bike stuff. Some interesting Douglas lots as well. I am hoping to get there if the boss says OK.
