The Douglas model A is my own design using inspiration from historical building methods of motorcycles and bicycles. The frame is made of 3 inch aluminum tubing and assembled using lugs. Lugs are the corner pieces that determine the angles of the frame. The lugs are also made from aluminum tubing that is cut and welded at a precise angle. The straight sections are then fit into the lug and welded. This method allows the tubing to be assembled without any bending which makes for a stronger frame, and in my opinion offers a unique and custom look.
The size of the model A is comparable to a 125cc motocross bike. They will come with a rebuilt 50cc engine from one of the major motorcycle companies. The engine mounting cradle is interchangeable and can be adjusted in order to fit up to a 250cc motor. The idea is that you buy one bike to start out on and it grows with you as your skill level increases and riding environment changes.
Some of the options I want to offer can be seen in the pictures. The color choice of each individual part is up to you. Eventually there will be an outline drawing that you can paint at the website and save.
One of the most important features I want to offer is that every bike comes with a complete instructional video that shows how to take down and assemble the whole bike to its smallest component. It will show how to do all of the regular maintenance along with a complete list of all the tools needed and a list of where to get them.
