Does anyone know the total number of 750 Triumphs made from 1973 till the end of production?

You should be able to work it out from the frame numbers by year. 73 and 74 have some 650s in there as well, there is a thread here with those. See the link at the top middle of this forum page for the numbers.

And there were some early 750's that were 724's instead of 748's. That caused some head scratching when measuring the bores on my early "750" till I did some research.

Are you including Harris versions? Or TSS's (438) and TSX's? (140?)

All Triumph 750's. I believe some of the last made at Meriden had numerical serial numbers of 30,000 ? Where's all the bean counters that know this stuff grin

"During this 12-year period, 81,103 machines were manufactured. But this figure includes an unspecified number of 650cc oil-in-frame T120s."

I had a bit of time today so went through the TOMCC number lists and some info i have on the 1973/74 models. I hope this is of use and happy to be corrected if anyone has more info (I have excluded T150s/ T160s):

Meriden

1973 JH15101 to GH35469 (Aug 1972 to Jun 1973) 20368 (Includes 478* 650s and 3900* 500s) Total 750s = 15990

*Best estimate based on info I have available

1974 GJ55101 to NJ60061 (Jun 1973 to Oct 1973) 4960 (Includes 1072 650s and 1202 500s) Total 750s = 2686

Meriden Cooperative
Continuation of previous scheme.
1974 NJ60062 to NJ60083 (Apr 1975 to Apr 1975) All T120Vs
1975 DK61000 to GK62248 (Apr 1975 to Jun 1975) 1249
1976 HN62501 to GN72283 (Jul 1975 to Jun 1976) 9782
1977 GP73000 to PP84931 (Jun 1976 to Nov 1977) 11932
1978 HX00100 to HX10747 (Jul 1977 to Jul 1978) 10648
1979 HA11001 to PA24608 (Jul 1978 to Nov 1979) 13608
1980 XB24609 to KB27573 (Dec 1979 to Sep 1980) 2964

1981 to 1983
Frame and engine numbers matched. Month prefixes as for 1969 to 1980 but year prefix now gets additional letter. TSXs were exported to the USA which required ISO 3779 VINs with the first letter being the model year code and the M indicating the factory (Meriden) followed by 6 digits (e.g. SCGB75502CM032050).
1981 KDA28001 to JDA29443 (Sep 1980 to Aug 1981) 1443
1982 EDA30001 to BDA31693 (May 1981 to Feb 1982) 1693
1982 NDA31901 to BDA31925 (Oct 1981 to Feb 1982) 25 (My note - USA required ISO VINs from 1982)
1982 CM031701 to CM032213 (Oct 1981 to Jan 1983 - TSX) 513
1983 BEA33001 to CEA35601 (Feb 1982 to Apr 1983) 2601

Total Meriden 750s = 75134
L.F.Harris
The Harris machines used full ISO 3779 VINs (e.g. SCXB75502HN001138) with the 10th character being the effective Model Year and the 11th the factory code (N = Newton Abbot).
The engine number was just a number but it did match the last 6 digits of the VIN (Frame Number).
1985 FN000002 to FN000191 (1983 to 1985) 190
1986 GN000192 to GN000788 (1985 to 1986) 596
1987 HN000789 to HN001176 (1986 to 1987) 387
1988 JN001177 to JN001258 (1987 to 1988) 81

Total Harris 750s = 1254

...long time wondering how there are so many in business selling parts for such a few bikes (May be 20000 survivors?) that mostly are barely used so no need of parts anyway then a bunch that are chopped etc so actually needing only couple of things like electric stuff...
