Essentially a 'Tiger-and-a-half', the Triumph and BSA 750cc triples were launched in the UK in 1969, just in time to be up-staged by Honda's four-cylinder CB750. Differences between the Triumph Trident and BSA Rocket III were more than just cosmetic: the two models used different frames and in BSA guise the motor's cylinder block was inclined forwards. Only the Trident survived the Group's collapse in 1972, continuing as the T150V (with five-speed gearbox) and later the T160 (using the BSA-type, inclined engine). The number of important production race victories achieved (notably by the works Triumph 'Slippery Sam') is eloquent testimony to how effective a high-speed road-burner a well-fettled triple can be. Restored in 2006, this T150V currently displays a total of 3,726 miles on the odometer and is described by the vendor as in generally excellent, running condition. The machine is offered with Netherlands registration papers.
