1973 TRIUMPH TRIDENT T150
Here we have another timeless classic. This Trident T150 is in immaculate condition and comes with matching engine number and frame. We have included a Certificate of authenticity confirming a build date of the 14th November 1972.Essentially a 'Tiger-and-a-half', the Triumph and BSA 750 triples were launched in the UK in 1969, just in time to be up-staged by Honda's four-cylinder CB750. Differences between the Triumph Trident and BSA Rocket 3 were more than just cosmetic: the two models used different frames and in BSA guise the motor's cylinder block was inclined forwards. Only the Trident survived the Group's collapse in 1972, continuing as the T150V (with 5-speed gearbox) and later the T160 (using the BSA-type engine). The number of important production race victories achieved (notably by the works Triumph 'Slippery Sam') is eloquent testimony to how effective a high-speed road-burner a well-fettled triple can be. Today the models are served by an active owners’ club and enjoy an enthusiastic following worldwide. Call us today on 01744 616161 to reserve this stunning piece of bike history.
