Description
 
This immaculate Triumph Trident T150V triple is one for the connoisseur. It is one of the best examples we have seen of the machine that, along with BSA's Rocket 3 version, was the British superbike of the early seventies. Its low mileage and superb condition are the result of a long spell in a private collection and subsequent light use by fastidous owners. We are told that the Trident was acquired by well known dealer and restorer Dave Embleton of Mill House Motorcycles in Durham with light fire damage. He completely stripped and rebuilt it to a very high standard, using stainless fasteners throughout and with everything renewed as required. It stayed as part of his personal colllection for 12 years until another collector made him 'an offer he couldn't refuse'. Two subsequent owners have used it mainly as a show bike, meaning it remains in very fine condition. As it has had so little road use in recent times we have carried out a top end strip and inspection, with help from a friend who builds and races these engines in historic competition. It was found to be in excellent order, with every indication that the indicated 12000 miles is genuine. The bike rides every bit as well as it looks with oodles of power in reserve and excellent handling. The 740cc engine delivers 58 bhp, enough in its day for a top speed of 120mph and superb mid-range acceleration. It will require careful running in for a couple of hundred miles before checking valve clearances and torque settings and should then be ready for next season. We will put 12 months MOT on it before delivery. Tridents are never available in great numbers and rarely of this quality so don't miss out.
