The Douglas Engineering Company was formed in Bristol in 1882 by brothers William and Edwin Douglas, at first as a blacksmiths shop but soon expanding to become an ironfounders. With the turn of the twentieth 20th century and the advent of the motor vehicle, the company quickly became involved in the development of internal combustion engines.
The first Douglas motorcycle appeared in 1907, although the Douglas foundry had earlier supplied engine castings to the Bristol engineer Joseph Barter for his Fairy motorcycle, which would become the basis of the Douglas design. There followed a long line of horizontally-opposed twin cylinder machines of 2.3/4hp, right through to the late 1920s.
The 1914-18 War saw production of 2.3/4hp machines in large numbers for the war effort and also the start of the 3.1/2hp and 4hp models. During the 1920s many new machines followed, such as the popular 350cc EW, more powerful 500cc and 600cc models, and speedway or ‘dirt track’ machines. In the difficult trading conditions of the 1930s, a wide range of machines was produced including lightweight models, the now rarely seen S6/T6, the Endeavour (Douglas’ first transverse twin) and finally the pre-war Aero models.
After the Second World War, during which Douglas manufactured horizontally-opposed stationary engines, motorcycle production restarted with the 350cc Mk I or T35, followed by the Mk 3 and Mk 4 models, both with sports versions.
The start of the 1950s saw the Mk 5 variant, with the Competition and high-performance 80 Plus and 90 Plus versions. The final model, the Dragonfly, still a 350cc horizontally-opposed twin, was announced in 1954 with production finally ending in 1957 after an overall marque life span of just 50 years.
