Hi Leon

This is certainly the brake block mount as fitted to the 1914 3 1/2hp machines, and I presume the 2 3/4s. Whether it was fitted to earlier years models I don't know.

Cheers, Graeme

Does anyone know when the holes disappeared? I think later (I don't know how much later) the brake shoe was solid and there was an eccentric pin on the mount for adjustment.

Chris I have someone looking for a block for a 1915, if he doesn't want this one you're welcome to it. Bert Pol http://www.bertpol-vintagemotorcycles.com/parts%20Douglas.htm has repro solid ones, and to be honest this one is not very flash!

Cheers

Leon

Leon,
          This is exactly the same as the one fitted to my 1913 'TT' 2¾HP - even down to the lightening holes.

  Regards,
                Eddie.

Hi Leon
Thanks for the offer, I have seen them on Bert Pol in Ali bronze but think I would rather have an original if poss or I could machine one out of solid or even fadricate one.
Please let me know if comes available as I am interested.
Thanks
 Chris
