PROPERTY OF A DECEASED'S ESTATE
C.1937 TERROT 499CC TYPE RD (LOT 329)
REGISTRATION NO. EDD 936 (SEE TEXT)
FRAME NO. 232120
ENGINE NO. 141188
Like many of his cycle industry contemporaries, Charles Terrot turned to powered transport towards the end of the 19th Century, and by the early 1900s his Dijon factory was making not only bicycles but also motorcycles, quadricycles, and voiturettes. Previously a user of proprietary engines, Terrot began producing its own power units in the mid-1920s. This late-1930s Terrot is powered by a single-cylinder sidevalve engine of unitary construction. Last taxed in December 2014, the machine is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There is no registration document with this Lot. It should be noted the HPI database records engine number 171188. Prospective bidders must satisfy themselves as to the validity of the Vehicle Registration Number prior to bidding.
£800 - 1,200
€890 - 1,300
To be sold without reserve
As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
