Lot Details
1972 Triumph Trident
Frame no. T150VNG04163
Engine no. T150VNG04163
Introduced in 1969 with its three cylinders bolt upright in the chassis, the T150 Trident got off to a shaky start. While the triple was technically impressive and soon to have a race pedigree that would be envied, the production streetbike was hampered with dubious styling that was just plain off-putting to most buyers. The bike's squared-off "bread loaf" gas tank and campy "ray gun" mufflers were over the top and not well received. Triumph quickly retreated and offered a "beauty kit" for dealers to install that replicated the look of the beloved Bonneville, soon incorporated in the bike's production run. The Pierce T150 Trident is equipped with several common period accessories, namely a 3-into-1 collector exhaust and piggyback-reservoir shock absorbers.
