Terrot Cycles 1935

Terrot Cycles 1935 - scan 1 main image

This 1935 catalogue features:

  • A strange and tiny figure on scan 1 that looks like Baron Karl von Drais on his Laufmaschine. I can’t think why he is there - he had no particular connection to Terrot, Dijon or 1935.
  • Simplex 3 speed gears which have now been accorded the privilege of adorning a distinct Polymultipliée model (see scan 7). It is the new Simplex geared Polymultipliée that features in the picture (not the older version using the Terrot’s own Modèle HT derailleur) - and it is notable that the Simplex equipped bike is a good 20% cheaper.
