Having owned and ridden an Italian marque for many years I have seen registries for some of the more rare or lower production number of those models.
Fun to see where in the world some of the motorcycles have ended up and for how long.

I have looked around the interwebs and do not find one for the Tridents. Is there such a database...?

Thanks,
rd

Hi Robert,
There is a register of Triumph Hurricanes originally started by the designer, Craig Vetter.
Not sure whether it is still active and maintained or not.
There are no registers for other triples that I am aware of.
However nothing to stop you starting one for T160s.
An interesting project to keep you occupied in a Maine winter!

Ok, I have a friend here in Maine that has #01518 X-75. I can check with him whether that registry is still being maintained.

That would be a fun albeit time-consuming, tedious labor of love to assemble wouldn't it..? . Still neat to see where they all are.

Best,
Rob

Doesn't look like it.

I imagine the TR3OC keep a registry of members bikes. Not sure how one could access it though.

I am a member of the TR3OC but dont remember ever "registering" bikes with them.
There is good info on how many bikes of what model were produced but IME very little in the way of how many have survived, who owns them and where they are located.

Does it matter how many are left?
Only a very small percentage would be added to any database, therefore, what would be the point?

No, probably not, just a curiosity really. The X-75 database that you posted is very much like the older Guzzi model lists that I have seen for information and format.

Just kinda-sorta fun to see where these motorcycle ended up. There are certainly more T-160s than X-75s, no...?

Best,
Rob

T160 and X75 (no hyphens, same for T140)

Yes, the official figure as far as I'm aware is 7,211 T160s and 1,154 X75s.

Personally it is only of very mild interest to me--but others may have a different view.

The TR3OC offers a dating service. About $25 to its members, more for non members. However, this will only tell you when your bike left the factory, and to which US distributor it was dispatched.
I only spent the money because Stuart said that Triumph persisted with the G stamping until October of '72 and I wished to confirm that mine was a September of '72 bike.
They can probably confirm how many T160s were made, but I don't think they maintain a registry for the one model.
I guess they should, it seems like most of the T160s ended up back home in England.
