1974 Triumph T160
Frame no. T160AK00968
Engine no. T160AK00968
It wasn't until late in 1974 that the Trident, now called a T160, got good looks to call its own. This used the inclined-cylinder triple borrowed from sister company BSA, atop which perched a truly beautiful fuel tank of classic proportions. Equipment updates included electric starting, a five-speed gearbox, and disc brakes front and rear. Had the Trident been like this from the start, who knows how that might have affected the company's fortunes. As it was, T160 production would go on for little more than a year; in all, just over 7200 units were produced. The Pierce collection's T160 is in virtually stock condition.
