  1. This is not the Bayley/Coles Douglas this is the Taylor/Manzano Douglas

    I agree with Someone Else. The machine is the Bayley/Coles Douglas. The Taylor/Manzano Douglas has a different style oil tank and the front brake assembly is unpainted. Anybody know when these two machines will be seen in action again?
