1916 Douglas Model V Pictures

Add Your Photos!

A very neat WW1 despatch riders mount, restored to be as close as possible to how it would have been in 1916.  It was found as a rusty wreck and has needed many parts fabricating including the tank, forks and handlebars.

This despatch riders version had many unique features including a leather mud-shield, three toolboxes, a large handlebar mounted headlamp and gas generator and a WWI Khaki finish.  An astounding 25,000 of these were purchased by the War Department.
