Launched in the UK in 1969, the BSA-Triumph 750cc triples were based on the existing Triumph 500cc twin-cylinder engine, being in essence a 'Tiger-and-a-half'. Differences between the Triumph Trident and BSA Rocket 3 were more than just cosmetic: the two models used different frames and in BSA guise the motor featured an inclined cylinder block. Only the Trident survived the group's collapse in 1972, continuing as the five-speed T150V and later the T160 (using the BSA-type inclined engine). Bike magazine achieved a top speed on 128mph with the BSA version back in 1971, demonstrating that the triple gave nothing away in performance terms to the Honda CB750.

Although ultimately upstaged in the showroom by Japanese rivals, the Triumph and BSA triples did more than enough on the racetrack in Formula 750 events to ensure their place in motorcycling history, while the 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.

The bike presented here was built as a café and was never ridden since after.
