Triumph Trident T160 1977

This outstanding example of triumph’s flagship triple is possibly the cleanest and most original we have seen! Viewing is highly recommended as the stunning pictures and videos don’t do this bike justice. It goes without saying that the Trident is matching frame and engine numbers and runs and rides impeccably.

Of BSA-Triumph’s two flagship three-cylinder models, only the Triumph Trident survived the Group’s collapse in 1972, continuing as the five-speed T150V and later the heavily revised and restyled T160 (using the inclined engine of the deleted BSA Rocket III, suitably altered to appear more Triumph-like). The important production race victories achieved (most notably by the works Triumph ‘Slippery Sam’) testify eloquently to how effective a high-speed road-burner a well-fettled triple can be, and indeed, the T160’s improved cycle parts reflected lessons learned from production racing. Other important advances included an electric starter, rear disc brake and left-side gear change. Fewer than 7,500 T160s were made between March 1975 and December 1976 when the Small Heath factory closed, and this last-of-the-line triple can only become increasingly collectible. Today these BSA-Triumph triples enjoy an enthusiastic following worldwide and are supported by a first rate owners’ club – the T&R3OC – and numerous recognised specialists.
