Registration no. 722 VG 61
Frame no. 123106
At the Paris Salon in the autumn of 1925, Terrot introduced the 347cc Model H, which replaced the Model G and was rated at 4CV for taxation purposes. The first examples were still equipped with British-made JAP engines and Terrot's old-fashioned, horizontal-spring forks but by the year's end a more modern version had appeared, featuring Terrot's own sidevalve engine, Druid forks and Pilgrim oil pump. Sidevalve-engined standard and touring, and overhead-valve sports versions were offered, all of which were also available in 'Confort' (luxury) form at extra cost. The motorcycle offered here is an overhead-valve HSST sports model that has been modified for racing. Presented in 'barn find' condition, the machine is offered for restoration and comes with French Carte Grise normale.

    Au Salon de Paris de l'automne 1925, la firme introduisit son Type H de 347 cm3, taxé pour 4 CV, qui remplaçait le Type G,. Les premiers exemplaires étaient encore équipés de moteurs JAP et de l'ancienne fourche avant à ressorts horizontaux de Terrot, mais en fin d'année apparut une version plus moderne dotée du propre moteur Terrot latéral, d'une fourche Druid et d'une pompe à huile Piilgrim. Des versions Standard et Tourisme à soupapes latérales et des modèles à soupapes en tête HSST, Sport et Supersport furent proposées, toutes étant disponibles en version « Confort » avec supplément. La moto proposée ici est un modèle sport HSST à soupapes en tête modifiée pour la course. Présentée en état « sortie de grange », elle est proposée comme un projet de restauration accompagnée de sa carte grise normale.
