Terrot Motorcycles 1903-1904

1903 Olympia Show

Terot and Co.
Here is a firm of French motor cycle manufacturers who are exhibiting in England the Terrot motor bicycles of 2½ and 2¾ h.p. The drive is by means of a V rawhide belt, carried over a jockey pulley, which allows the belt to be tensioned or slackened at will. A novel introduction is a small inspection window for viewing the spark under compression, also the cradle for fixing the engine. This is carried double right round the crank chamber on each side. The usual handle switch fitted to French machines has been dispensed with, and the front rim brake lever now breaks contact by means of the interrupter on the handle-bar stem. A very wide back hub is fitted which we consider an excellent point. (Stand 23, Minor Hall.)
