?? 60's Terrot Dijon ??

Like I've said in the other threads I have posted, I am learning...

I drove quite a ways for this one...

Sorry about the lighting, its the best spot in my yard for bike photos.

27" Rigada Rims aren't in the photos.













It really is in practically flawless shape...
doesnt seem like its really been ridden, theres a tiny amount of surface rust from weather and little to no scratches anywhere.
Old U lock that he doesnt have the key for, bolt cutters should work.

You can see in the photos the dropouts are pretty generic.

Peugeot Special Allege Tubes
Nervex Lugs
Durax Cottered Cranks
Lyotard
Huret Allvit deraileurs
AVA stem ? bars
Mafac Dural Forge centre pulls
Henri Gauthier leather Saddle, very sturdy / hardly worn
Pletscher rack

This is my first French bicycle, my girlfriend has a Jacque Gitane...

Anyone in the know on this model / date / Terrot Dijon in general, please, enlighten me.


*****THANKS ALL*****

That's incredible. Quite a beauty. Looks like all you need are a set of Mavics and a chain.

Great find !,it,s begging to be kept original,rack has got 2 go,nice set of "Mavic,s" would look good,if stem IS "AVA" ditch it (coz its da DEATH stem) replace with either ATAX or PIVO stem instead which is still period correct,so my friend its wash , polish, and polish some more ! D@mn,wish it was mine (did I say that out loud ?)

I have a Phillipe Bar/Stem combo I was going to switch it out with, if it fits.

I have heard of AVA's breaking isssues.

Great condition, I'd guess from the 60s.

I associate smooth derailleur pulleys with the early sixties. That's in great shape.

so YOU got this...I saw it on CL but decided agin it, too much driving and no more space for another project...it's definitely a keeper. Here's an all-French website
https://www.ifrance.com/TERROT-DIJON/
but the upshot is yours is considered a very stylish "midgrade" and that the Terrot factory stopped producing bikes in the '60s, then Peugeot took over the name.

there's the rub: it's got great details, but it ain't 531. That's some sort of straight-gauge steel tubing sourced from Peugeot, and stamped dropouts. Add in the huret allvit and cottered crank and it's closer to a UO-8 than a PX.

Stamped? If they are, they're rather good ones.

The dropouts are pretty plain...

I have been looking for a PX10, and the fact that this isnt a lightweight doesnt bother me... I have 3 other bikes with Reynolds or Columbus.

You all might think I'm tearing up the originality of the bike, or taking away its French Purity...

But I'm switching out the Allvit drive and putting Nuovo Record from around the same time.

I'm not a fan of the Allvit stuff, it looks and functions too much like Schwinn Approved Huret deraileurs.


Anyways I'm very excited to get this thing on the road. Thanks everyone for appreciating and confirming what I thought was an excellent score.

I don't blame you in the least for that equipment swap. I think a Gran Sport might look a little more in place than a Nuovo Record, but they aren't as plentiful. As long as they shift and can wrap the chain you need.

You should keep it French. A nice Simplex would go well on that, or even a Huret Svelto or Luxe (much better than the Alvit).

N.B. The "Schwinn Approved" was just a rebadged Alvit.

It is basically a late 1960s Peugeot UO-8, but with great-looking lugs and chrome on the stays. I like the Svelto derailleur idea, if you want to keep it French. Nice find!

I saw that one on CL, and woulda gone after it, but I've already got two '60's Peugeots I'm working on. That's a real beauty. Congratulations!

What hubs are on that bike? It looked like it had wingnuts also. What brand wingnuts. Also, couldn't tell from the CL photo if it had steel rims.

Not bad, though I would have chosen Nuovo Gran Sport (perhaps with the 3-point crankset) myself - I dare say it would "fit" a bit better.

Although Id love to have it like so...

I'm not made of money or Campagnolo at the moment.

Im thinking I'll switch out the stem first, I have something arranged.

I do have early Nuovo Record F / R derailers... I'm pretty satisfied with the Durax cottereds and I do think the chain will run fine with that setup.

Unless of course anyone is willing to work out a deal on some Simplex or Huret DR's.

Thanks again guys.
