My 1974 Triumph T150V

This is in its current form, but I plan on eventually putting it back in stock form.

Thx for the photos, Jon.
Looks like a good basis for a standard bike.

Looks like somebody tried to make a bobber from it. But if it's mechanically sound, you just need to buy some expensive body parts and paint them (which is also expensive ). smile

You are welcome, Richard. It initially caught my eye because I liked how it looked and I wanted a Trident. However, I also love the look of a stock Trident and ensured I had the correct parts to make that happen when I felt it was time to do so.

Great, it makes it much easier. So now only to make sure it is mechanically sound. The best test is to attach an oil pressure gage and check an oil pressure on really hot engine. My Trident took me for a ride for last 4 years and I still can't see the end. Specially after yesterday 80 miles stint.

For sure. It was rebuilt by Big D Cycles many years ago but has not been run in yet. That will be up to me!!!

'74 was a good year, all the updates to the engine had been done. You might wish to check carb jetting, the similar exhaust on mine likes 170 main jets.
You have your work cut out for you, keep us posted.


It's not a bug, it's 'character.'
