Some DOUGLAS Motorcycle Operator's Manuals PDF above the page.
Douglas introduced a transverse opposed-type gasoline engine, continuing to use this technology for more than two decades.
The first Douglas motorcycles had a direct belt drive, but since 1910 they began to be equipped with a 2-speed transmission.
Douglas brand equipment was popular among buyers due to its good dynamic performance, ease of control and ease of starting the engine.
During the WW1 (1914 - 1918), Douglas manufactured a large number of motorcycles with 2.75-hp engines, and in 1920 the base Douglas Model W was equipped with a 2.75 hp engine with a kick starter, a three-speed gearbox, a clutch and two steps .
Modification of the WD was equipped with the previous dual-band gearbox without a clutch mechanism. Gas tank volume: 5.5 liters; oil tank volume: 1.5 liters; fuel consumption: ~ 3.3 liters per 100 kilometers.
