Lot Details
1928 Terrot 247cc Model FT Tourisme
Registration no. 330 VH 61
Frame no. 68273
In 1925 Terrot introduced the Type F, a lightweight model powered by a 247cc single-cylinder two-stroke engine of its own design, which was rated at 3CV for taxation purposes. The Type F was initially offered in two versions: the two-speed, belt-driven Tourisme and the slightly heavier and more expensive Sport-luxe, which came with a three-speed gearbox and all-chain drive. Developments of the Type F continued to be offered well into the 1930s.

A nicely presented older restoration, this Model FT Tourisme is equipped with a Luxor headlamp and acetylene generator. The machine is offered with French Carte Grise de collection and comes with the correct original toolbox (removed for repair to the leather). It should be noted that the registration number illustrated is an old one issued in 1999.

    Immatriculation n°. 330 VH 61
    Cadre n° 68273

    En 1925, Terrot lança la Type F, une moto légère dotée d'un moteur monocylindre deux temps de 247 cm3 de sa propre conception taxé pour 3 CV. La Type F fut proposée au début sous deux formes : la Tourisme à deux vitesses et à courroie et la Sport-luxe plus lourde et plus chère avec boîte à trois rapports et chaîne secondaire. Des modèles dérivés de la Type F furent proposés dans les années 1930.

    Cette Type FT Tourisme de belle présentation anciennement restaurée, équipée d'un phare Luxor et d'un générateur d'acétylène et proposée avec sa carte grise française de collection, est accompagnée de son coffret à outils d'origine (démonté pour réparer le cuir). On notera que le numéro d'immatriculation illustré ici est un ancien numéro émis en 1999.
