1968 Triumph 740cc T150 Trident For Sale by Auction
Essentially a 'Tiger-and-a-half', the Triumph and BSA 750cc Triples were launched in 1968. BSA-Triumph had learned a lot about engine development from racing the 500cc twins, and the Triples were the most powerful machines in their class. Today they enjoy an enthusiastic following worldwide and are supported by numerous recognised specialists and a first rate owners' club, the TR3OC. Dating from the first season of production and believed restored, this T150 Trident was re-imported from California in 1990 and purchased by the Museum in July 2003. Currently displaying a total of only 4.9 miles on the odometer, the machine is offered with the 1990 and 2003 purchase receipts and form C&E 386. It should be noted that the background engraving to the engine number boss is missing, suggesting that the number has been re-stamped. Furthermore, the machine's mechanical condition is not known; accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to its condition, completeness, correctness, or otherwise prior to bidding.
