Douglas - The Unlikely Trials Bike?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

A couple of members of the London Douglas club at rest - watching the world go by.

Enjoy.

Hi

I knew a former trials rider by the name of Philip Shaw (sadly now no longer with us).

Philip was active in the immediate post war years and into the 50's. He remembered an incident when a complete horizontal

cylinder was smashed off a trials Douglas during a Yorkshire Centre trial.

It makes Mick Andrews achievement in finishing the Scottish pre-65 on a Douglas in recent years all the more remarkable.

Regards

Hi sparks et al,

I knew if I tried I could find an image of Mick Andrews riding the Douglas in the 2006 Scottish Pre-65, and here it is, courtesy of photographer Jack Knoops of Ripon.

Enjoy
