The Bristol-based Douglas Foundry took up motorcycle production in 1907. Development of fore-and-aft twin made for a slim machine with a low center of gravity, and the design's virtues were soon demonstrated in competition, Douglas machines taking first, second and fourth places in the 1912 Junior TT in the Isle of Man. Douglas were quick to realize the advantages of the countershaft gearbox, its three-speed entries gaining the Team Prize in the 1914 Six Days Trial.
