Lot 411: Terrot Type PU

Grand Palais Sale, Bonhams (7 February 2013)

The early 1930s was a time of severe economic depression and to suit these hard times every motorcycle manufacturer had to have a selection of 'utility' models in the range. Fortunately, Terrot already offered an extensive range of two-stroke lightweights and in 1928 had added a 250cc sidevalve single to the line-up: the Model O. At the end of 1932 the O Series was replaced by a new, even cheaper four-stroke lightweight: the PU, built initially with a 225cc engine and from the summer of 1933 with one of 246cc. Production continued until 1940, by which time there was a better-equipped 'luxury' version in the range alongside the standard model. A very pretty older restoration, this charming Terrot Model PU is offered with assorted correspondence, purchase receipt (1983) and French Carte Grise de collection.
