1972 Triumph Trident T150


The Triumph Trident T150, first introduced in 1969, was a radical new model, with a three cylinder 750 cc engine.  These bikes are powerful, even by modern day standards, handle well, and are comfortable to ride over both short and long distances.  Roy Bacon in his essential reference work 'Triumph Motorcycle Buyer's Guide' gives the Triumph Trident T150V five stars and recommends both to ride and as an investment.  And that was in 1989!
The bike for sale here is a recently imported North American model T150 with the US style tank and higher bars. It has come from a Canadian collection where it has been dry stored for a number of years.  The speedometer is showing 2900 miles, and given the overall condition of the bike, we believe that this mileage may be correct.  It has been maintained in superb original condition with faultless chrome, and original paint with a lovely patina.    The condition of the bike means that there is no need for restoration, it can simply be mantained, ridden and enjoyed. We have recomissioned the bike, to ensure that it is in full working order, and have carried out the following work:
  • change oil and filter
  • clean sump filter and tank filter
  • check and adjust tappet clearances
  • change gearbox and primary chaincase oils
  • strip and clean carburettors and retune
  • strip forks and renew seals
  • clean and adjust front brake
  • fit new clutch cable
  • repaint side panels in correct colour supplied by RS paints
The bike has been MOTd, registered and taxed in the UK and is ready to ride.  We believe that it is sensibly priced given its condition, and that it represents a sound investment for the future.
