Terrot 1929 HSO 350 cc 1 cyl sv



Terrot   HSO   1929  350 cc sidevalve  frame#90625  engine # 66170.S  D

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 modernized H appeared, with Terrot’s own engine,  Druid forks  and Pilgrim oil pump.
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. In 1928 the HTS code was changed to HST. 
Subsequently  more codes emerged, often consisting of three or four letters.
This 1930 model is unrestored and has a complete electrical equipment and pillion seat. 
A very practical vintage tourer, robust and reliable.
