Rose-tinted au­to­cy­cles

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

There was a once a time when gentle­men wore hats and pan­nier mounts were brief­case hold­ers. This is the by­gone era that Black Douglas are seek­ing to em­u­late with the Ster­ling. Un­like its mod­ern coun­ter­parts there are no Öh­lins forks or Brembo brakes here, rid­ers in­stead set­tling for a hard­tail with a springer fork and drum brakes all round. There are a few dif­fer­ent mod­els avail­able, but our favourite is the Claret Clas­sic as the wicker bas­ket looks to be the per­fect size for a pic­nic. All the bikes are avail­able in 125cc or 230cc, with the Claret priced at €11,292 (about £9770) for the 125 and €12,138 (about £ 10,502) for the 230.
