Oliver Midy first commissioned Glynn to develop a series of concept sketches for his fore- and- aft twin which was hoped would carry the historic badge of Douglas. Midy was never able to secure world right to the name, and reverted to the title Midual for the bike, which made its debut at the 1999 Paris show. The prototype was produced by Glynn together with modeller Emmanuel Estevant near Le Mans, although the engine was CNC-milled from composite and never ran. Unable to secure funding, the Midual never reached production.
