Dragonfly TLS brake
« on: 16 Sep 2021 at 10:17 »
Greetings,
                 Whilst visiting family on the Island spotted a very nice Dragonfly outfit at Peel bike show, could'nt find the owner at the time, have attached a pic of the TLS front brake fitted, I do not recognise it. Anyone have an idea??
Thanks
 Mike

That looks like the Dragonfly outfit belonging to an LDMCC member who lives on the Island. The front hub is from a Douglas 'Plus' model, but the brake plate has been modified to be 2LS, and also has a modified spindle bearing. If it is the bike I'm thinking of, it has also been enlarged to 475cc.

  Regards,
                Eddie.

Thanks Eddie,
                      That would make sense especially the power upgrade.
