Originally founded in 1893 by Joseph Magnat and Luis Debon in Lyon as a bicycle manufacturing company which moved into motorcycles, Magnat Debon, later based in Grenoble, were financially controlled by the Dijon-based Terrot concern from 1923. Although at first the two makes remained distinct from each other, as the century progressed the two converged with Magnat Debon increasingly becoming a 'sous-marque' of the parent company, using Terrot components. By the 1950s the makes were almost identical, differences being mainly in colour scheme and badging, the Terrot OSSD forming the base for both. Mechanically, the firm's 'square' OHV 250 was a reliable and sporting ride and is a sought-after model. This example, to original specification, has a current Carte Grise and should respond well to re-commissioning and the usual safety checks.
