Terrot 1937 model HLG 350cc 1 cyl sv



Terrot   HLG    1937  350 cc sidevalve  combination   frame#  205141  engine # 208016

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.
In the early thirties the codes changed again, the HLG designating  “Tourisme Standard”  and the HML  referring to the  “Tourisme Luxe” machines.  
This stylish combination is an older restoration in good condition."
