Re(5): Don R's
IP: 51.9.93.76


Some months ago I read an article about the bikes the Don Rs rode. Nearly every British motor cycle manufacturers supplied the Ariel, BSA with the 500cc side valve Douglas 350cc horizontally opposed twin, Norton, Royal Enfield I cannot recall if Triumph supplied any but I feel they must have and the preffered Don Rs bike the Marchless G3L, the L stood for light it was apparently a lot lighter than the other make I had one of these in the 50s only mine was in trials trim. The REME didn't like working on it. No two stroke were mentioned , was this because the plugs kept whiskering up? On D day small bikes got dropped from the bomb racks of aircraft like the 126cc Royal Enfield Flying Flea, the Welbike was another very small bike and of course the Paras used a very small bike that after the war became the Corgi. In the 50s they had 500cc Triumph side valves. My son had an ex army Armstrong in the 90s. This bike had I think something to do with CCM of Bolton owned by Alan Clews of Tottington. My son said it was a very good bike
