1975 Triumph Trident T160

This 1975 Triumph Trident T160 was purchased by the seller within the last two years, and it has subsequently been refurbished. Work included refinishing the 2.5-gallon fuel tank in white with metallic gold and gold-leaf accents, re-chroming the fenders, headlamp bucket, and other trim elements, installing braided fuel lines, and replacing the air filter, exhaust pipes, and tires. Power is from a 741cc air-cooled triple paired with a five-speed transmission, a single-disc clutch, and a drive chain. Equipment includes three Amal carburetors, 19″ wheels, Buchanan wire spokes, passenger foot pegs, both center and side stands, and a black two-up seat. This Trident T160 shows 2,700 miles and is now offered with a clean Indiana title in the seller’s name.
