Terrot of Dijon was the largest motorcycle manufacturer in France for much of the first half of the twentieth century, having absorbed Magnat-Debon in the late 1920's. During the early 1920s Terrot built JAP powered 350cc machines with 2 speed gearboxes. The G model, introduced at the Paris Salon of 1925, came in two versions, the Sport and Touriste. Later that year the H model appeared with a Terrot engine and much improved front suspension. The late twenties also saw the production of a Blackburne powered 174cc racing bike, and in 1937 another racing model had a transverse V-twin of 498cc. After WWII they built a range of ohv singles up to 500cc in capacity, a number of two-strokes and some rather nice scooters. In the 1950s they almalgamated with the Automoto Group under Peugeot and the name Terrot faded out.

This machine is an older restoration, it´s equipped with a Lavalette Magneto, speedo, Amac carburettor and a complete electrical system. It has many of nice details
