Hi all,

I am new to this group and would like to bring to your attention my late father's collection of 26 Vintage motorcycles 5 of which are Douglas 1920's TS and CW.

Bob Miller of Gawler, South Australia (my father) started collecting and restoring motorbikes in the late 1970's and continued until Dementia forced him into aged care in around 2009 and he passed away in April 2015 aged 91.
Sadly he never finished any complete restorations.

Of the 26 bikes mostly BSA but there are 2 Triumph Cubs, 1 AJS and the 5 Douglas. The only complete bike (as purchased) is an original 1938 BSA Goldstar with chrome and black tank.

All the bikes and parts (a truckload) will be auctioned at Scammells Auctions in Adelaide, South Australia on Saturday May 7 2016  Go to: http://www.scammellauctions.com.au/

Unfortunately a catalogue will not be available until late May.

The five Douglas include:
1) 1920 DOUGLAS TS 350 SV
2) 1922 DOUGLAS TS 350 SV
3) 1924 DOUGLAS CW 350 SV
4) 1924 DOUGLAS TS 350 SV
5) 1926 DOUGLAS TS 350 SV

Included are incomplete engines (engines are labelled 1-5) matched to frames (some frames sand blasted & primed). Engine parts have been overhauled to a degree and are ready for assembly.
There are 5 girder fork assembly's, seats with new leather covers, gearboxes, 6 or 7 tanks some with rust, rims, hubs, gas generators and lamps etc. etc.

Scammells have some expertise in Vintage bikes and will assemble the bikes using the available allocated(labeled) parts and or group appropriately, then make up "Lots" from left over parts.

Dad had an unwavering passion for all of his bikes and as a family we are keen for his bike to go to those who share that passion.

To view his entire collection Go to: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xxk865vg0ieur0l/AADJE49gam1XxiQa32p4397Ha?dl=0

I am happy to answer any questions but I have limited knowledge and cant share much more than what you can glean from the photos.

Yours Sincerely

Andrew Miller (youngest of 5 children)
