Lot Details
1927 Terrot 347cc Type H Project
Frame no. 60644
Engine no. 56135
Previously a user of British-built JAP engines, Terrot began producing its own power units in the mid-1920s and by the decade's end had become France's largest manufacturer of motorcycles. At the Paris Salon in the autumn of 1925, the firm 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 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. Tourisme, Sport and overhead-valve Supersport versions were offered, all of which were also available in 'Confort' (luxury) form at extra cost. This dismantled Type H is offered for restoration and comes with a 1997 purchase receipt. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves to this Lot's completeness or otherwise prior to bidding.

  • Terrot 347 cm3 Type H 1927 à restaurer
    Cadre n° 60644
    Moteur n° 56135

    Utilisatrice au début de moteurs JAP de fabrication britannique, la firme Terrot commença à produire ses propres moteurs au milieu des années 1920 pour devenir à la fin de cette décennie le plus gros constructeur de motos français. Au Salon de Paris de l'automne 1925, la firme introduisit son Type H de 347 cm3, homologué pour 4 ch pour des raisons fiscales, 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 Tourisme, Sport et Supersport furent proposées, toutes étant disponibles en version « Confort » avec supplément.Cette Type H démontée et offerte sous forme d'un projet de restauration est accompagnée de son certificat de vente. Les acheteurs potentiels sont priés de procéder eux-mêmes à un inventaire des pièces avant d'enchérir sur ce lot.
