Found on eBay: 1973 Triumph Trident T150V
By Landon Hall
This week’s eBay searching led us to one of the most well known of the British triples; the original Triumph Trident. The seller states that this T150V is an original, numbers-matching example. It’s been upgraded with electronic ignition, newly rebuilt wheels, new Dunstall-style megaphones, rebuilt gauges and more.
More from the seller: “This has a three cylinder, 750cc motor with five speed gearbox. Engine runs real strong and smooth, easy to start. Clutch and gearbox are smooth and quiet too. Engine has electronic ignition. Wheels are newly rebuilt by Buchanan’s with polished stainless spokes and polish alloy rims. Hubs are freshly polished too. Mufflers are new Dunstall style megaphones that sound great. Gauges are rebuilt and gauge holders are new. Has extra oil pressure gauge. Has new TT100 Dunlops front and rear. New rear sprocket and chain. New fuel lines on carbs. Bike is very clean, not a show bike but something you can be proud of and ride. A very good Trident.”
