introduce my self and my new acquisition:

1926 CW :

 obtained from that well known auction site - was located in northern NSW , me in Melbourne, Victoria.

so a road trip with son and dog in the 1961 falcon ute to collect last weekend, stopped at Tamworth country music festival on the way for a few days. then pressed on north to collect the douglas

 approx. 2250mile / 3800km round trip

loaded in ute :


 hit the biggest rain storms on way to collect at Casino and on way back around kempsey on the way back


its been restored years ago and not used .- seems all complete except missing exhaust  and front brake mechanism/actuating levers.











and nice sunset in Victoria on way back:



and home - in lounge !




plan is to get it on the road in time for the all british rally in newstead in april.

first things first need to find the front brake mechanism /actuating levers- anybody have  one ?

and do the exhaust

ok ,thanks to the help from a member on here have obtained some raw castings for the front brake actuating levers and the cut plates for the brake 'shoes'

ok thanks to a member on here have obtained some parts to start me off on the front brake.

the bike has the small pivot bolt still in the fork leg - and picked up another  set of forks that has the main pivot bolt in them .
 so now have to fettle /fit /manufacture the components .


2 sets :(because you never know when another douglas  may come along ...)
