Lot 449: Terrot HSST Racing Motorcycle

Grand Palais Sale, Bonhams (7 February 2013)

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.
