Page 233. 1903 Bicyclette Terrot de Dame No 1. SOLD

1903 Bicyclette Terrot de Dame Modele No 1

with New Preference Coaster Brake

This is a rare and attractive turn-of-the-century Lady’s bicycle from the leading French manufacturer Terrot. Ladies Terrots were fitted with the front brake that you see on this one, Terrot’s unique design …and very advanced for its age. It has also has the optional coaster (back-pedal) brake, so is very practical for riding.

The frame size is 50cm, which is just under 20″ (measured from the middle of the pedals to the top of the seat post).

This is a standard size for old French bikes, suiting a rider with a height of around 5′ to 5′ 2″.

The wheels are its original 26″ wooden ones with metal capping.

It has vintage Michelin Semi-Confort red 650B tyres (26 x 1 1/2 x 1 5/8). These look very attractive, and are fine for displays and local journeys, though they have some wear on the sidewalls and if you’re going to use it for long journeys I’d recommend replacing them. This size tyre is available on ebay (though not in this vintage colour).
