Nice bike, but I bet that pillion seat makes his wife's rear end sore after a short journey....

It is a very rare bike in the UK, I think just 2 here and not many more in France.
The Terrot community in France seem to look down on them, Terrot's last gasp before Peugeot bought them in the mid '50s.

The space for a double lip on the clutch side is good because the felt seal is about 35mm dia, but the magneto side is smaller and the casting a bit thin too.

You could get a deep pad to mount on the rear frame for the passenger and a clamp on set of foot pegs but with a max of 5 bhp would make uphill progress hard and the brakes would make that decent interesting.

Thank you for the help so far!

You should be using a rotary shaft seal. You will find suitably small ones used as shaft seals in hydraulic motors. May not be cheap.

Thank you Roy.
All the double lip seals I've seen are a large OD for the comparatively small ID I need (about 16mm crank shaft OD).
I'm sure I've seen lip seals that are really slim , ie for a 16mm ID, OD is about 22mm dia.
I'll search again.
