Triumph Trident T150 1973
Excellent example of Triumphs Trident T150, we have carried out a full service and will be supplying the bike with 2 new Dunlop tyres fitted. Originally sold to USA this trident came back home just before the previous owner acquired it around 8 years ago. Still fitted with its original engine so matching numbers. Excellent starter!
Launched in the UK in 1969, the BSA-Triumph 750cc triples were based on the existing Triumph 500cc twin-cylinder engine, being in essence a ‘Tiger-and-a-half’. 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 featured an inclined cylinder block. Only the Trident survived the group’s collapse in 1972, continuing as the five-speed T150V and later the T160 (using the BSA-type inclined engine). Bike magazine achieved a top speed on 128mph with the BSA version back in 1971, demonstrating that the triple gave nothing away in performance terms to the Honda CB750.
