Parts Identification
« on: 23 Jul 2021 at 16:09 »
Can anyone help with this request?

An uncle, a Douglas owner in his younger days, recently passed away. Among the contents of his garage were the two items in the attached photograph. They were in a box labelled “Douglas” but with no other information. I was hoping that you might be able to identify them for me. As a lifelong motorcyclist myself, I have an aversion to just throwing parts away that might be of value to someone else. If these items are indeed part for a Douglas motorcycle, I would be grateful if you could let me know what they are. Thank you very much.

They look like tie-down fittings on a boat ?
Such were very popular on sidecars at some point.
Possible ?

Don't think they are Douglas as such.

e.g. about half way along, with rope.

Or possibly for keeping a sidecar boot lid shut!

If there's a hole through the middle, it looks like an oil or fuel banjo fitting to me, is that a rubber gasket ?
