I bought this Trident from Ingvar Johansson in Gothenburg Sweden in the beginning of the 1990's.
The previous owner is supposed to be Rob Iannucci in NY.

It was covered in a 6 page article in Cycle 1978 April issue.
It was "supposed" to be the spare bike at Daytona 1971 but it has not been confirmed to me yet? It also came with a faring
with #72 and the name Mike Kidd se below.

Any related info about this Trident is hilghy appreciated.
Thanks a lot
Stig Johansson in Sweden.

Sorry to say, my friend Dan Macias died a couple years ago. He was the manager of the US factory team and would have known everything about that bike. It appears to be a Wenco frame, note the braces from the top tube to front down tube are straight. The North factory frames were an inverted "J". The Wenco were welded from 4130 rather than brazed using Acre and Pollock T45. I have a factory print of the North frame if you want it. Jon Blonc in New York now has the jig for the Wenco frame.
The sides of the head and cylinder fins are cut flat? That was for the air scoops in the inside front of the lower fairing that fed cool air to the carbs. Built from aluminum sheet.
Mike Kidd was a US rider but as far as I know he was not part of the US team in '71. I can send a team photo taken at Daytona.
Iannucci is the owner of Team Obsolete. He had several racing triples. Being a lawyer he sued ARHMA over some disagreement with the rules.
A note: Triumph Racing in America gives Mike Kidd as the final team member at Daytona in '74.

Just to correct the company name for future reference the tubing was T45 made by Accles and Pollock a Birmingham, UK tube company.

Well we can exclude the fairing from the bike. It has nothing to do with that particular bike except that it was shipped in the same crate. The correct blue & White fairing and stand was left behind. I just got this confirmed by Rob Ianucci who soldit to Sweden many years ago.
Still info regarding the bikes first year/s is of great interest so let see if anyone can come up with more info.


BSAing you
