Douglas torsion bar suspension

Another under-engine suspension system. Torsion bars seem an elegant solution, but that's an awful lot of parts and machining!

Got me thinking...swing arm system: I count two nuts, two tab washers, swing arm axle, grease fitting, two bushings, swing arm, two shocks (made by someone else), four bolts, four washers, four nuts: 23 items. I count 44 for the torsion bar. Yep almost double.
