Terrot HST 1930 350 cc sidevalve frame#106413 engine # 75106
The four stroke machines that Terrot produced in the early twenties had 350 cc JAP engines and archaic horizontal spring front forks. They were fitted with Terrot?s own 2-speed gearbox and chain-cum-belt transmission. Two versions were sold of this model G, the Sport and Touriste. By 1925 it was time for a new model, and in the autumns the model G was introduced at the Paris Salon. The first machines were still equipped with JAP engines and old type forks, but in the middle of November the modernized H appeared, with Terrot?s own engine, Druid forks and Pilgrim oil pump.
There were three versions: HT, HTS and HTC. T stood for Touriste, S for Sport and C for Confort, or luxury. The T had a standard engine and upswept touring handlebars, the TS a stronger engine and flat handlebars. The C type had 27x4 wired-on tyres, 140 mm wide mudguards and a steering damper The standard versions had 120 mm wide mudguards and 700x80 wired-on tyres. In 1928 the HTS code was changed to HST.
