Terrot 1928 model HT 350cc 1 cyl sv



Terrot   HTS   ca. 1928  350 cc sidevalve  frame 71357  engine  59675.S.

The four stroke machines that Terrot produced in the early twenties had 350 cc JAP engines and archaic horizontal spring front forks. 
They were fitted with Terrot’s own 2-speed gearbox and chain-cum-belt transmission. 
Two versions were sold of this model G, the Sport and Touriste. 
By 1925 it was time for a new model, and in the autumns the model G was introduced at the Paris Salon. 
The first machines were still equipped with JAP engines and old type forks, but in the middle of November the modernised H appeared, with Terrot’s own engine,  Druid forks  and Pilgrim oil pump.
 For the 1928 models there were three versions: HT, HTS and  HTC. T stood for Touriste, S for Sport and C for Confort, or luxury. 
The T had a standard engine and upswept touring handlebars, the TS a stronger engine and flat handlebars.  
The C type had 27×4 wired-on tyres, 140 mm wide mudguards and a steering damper The standard versions had 120 mm wide mudguards and 700×80 wired-on tyres.
This Terrot is in excellent original, unrestored condition and is equipped with the optional electric lighting with chain-driven dynamo.
