I've never seen one here in the states (maybe on the track at Barber), but it seems as if every other bike featured in the TR3OC newsletter is a Rob North Trident.
Are they like T160s, which have all been re-imported to England, or were there never many in the US to begin with?

Rob North replica frames have and are being made in UK for many years, a popular bike to go Classic racing on.

Earlier one from 1990

Miles Engineering later acquired the rights to the North chassis and continued production, ensuring that the BSA-Triumph triples remain a potent force in classic racing today. The Rob North frames are currently produced by Trident Engineering.

Its moved on from Trident Engineering to Rob North Triples.

Not sure who makes the frame for these.

As far as I know, Rob North is still making frames occasionally near San Diego. No idea if people convert them for the street or race them. Very few vintage races on the west coast now.
