1951 Dougla Mark 5 SOLD

Here we have a lovely 1951 Douglas Mark 5.

If you are looking at this chances are you know what these are about, but in case not a little history. During the Second World War Douglas made many stationary engines, and then restarted motorcycle production with the T35, another ohv flat-twin 350cc, set across a duplex fame with torsion bar rear suspension. Various Sport and Competition offshoots were built in the next few years, and the standard bike evolved through several incarnations to become the Mark V we have here. The Mark V was built until the introduction of the Dragonfly in 1955

By modern standards the Mark V is a tiny little bike; it barely comes up to your knees. In common with other Douglas engines of its era it likes to be revved.

Douglas Mark V standard facts :
• Built: 1951 to 1954
• Engine: OHV horizontally-opposed twin
• Capacity: 348cc
• Bore/Stroke: 60.8 x 60mm
• Compression: 7.25:1
• Gearbox: 4-speed, unit construction
• Frame: Duplex cradle
• Electrical system: Lucas Magdyno
• Front suspension: Radiadraulic forks
• Rear suspension: Swinging fork with torsion bars
• Brakes: 7-inch
• Wheels: 3.25 x 19-inch
• Fuel capacity: 3 gallons
• Wheelbase: 54.5-inches
• Ground clearance: 5.25-inches loaded
• Weight: 365lb

As for our bike here, it was bought a couple of years ago having mainly undergone dismantling, cleaning and where necessary restoration of many parts plus some new parts acquired all by a former owner, and then came to us partly assembled. The task then commenced but time ran out and in past few months it has been finally finished off by Swindon Classic Bikes in Kingsdown, Swindon where the last bit of work done (hence some photos all in their workshop, show both before and after) was build and fitting of new centre stand. Lastly new battery also fitted and it’s been given a tune up. Tyres are very good and not that old, rims good and indeed all chrome work good and not at all pitted or marked. Everything works as you would expect.

So a genuine ready to go classic bike for the summer, matching numbers to frame/engine etc, V5 and (although not required) a new MOT for your complete peace of mind. Currently SORN. Made in 1951 and with an age-related plate, but showing registered August 1991, so although older history not known, it probably spent some time outside the UK.
It’s not concours (quite) but is in very good overall condition as you expect after the work done over past 2 yrs, and probably amongst the best and most genuine of these examples currently available, becoming rare and more collectable no doubt in the future. Available to be seen and tried on request.
