c.1931 Terrot 347cc Type HSST Racing Motorcycle
Registration no. 722 VG 61 (France)
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.
