I recently bought 2 1969 tridents, my question is about the vin number , it is t150t 2XX ,last two digits omitted. ,I know they switched the vin system sometime in 1969, just wondering if triumph ever used a vin that simple? Thanks in advance for any info.

Yes--the very early Tridents (1968) used that numbering system.
It was T150T XYZ
where XYZ is the serial number starting at 101.
So if you have T150T 2XX then you have a bike between the 100th and 200th Trident made.
As you note the system was changed to the month/year system not long after production started.
The month/year system being for example DC 029XX T150T (one of mine).

Thanks, it’s titled as a 1969, it’s all original, paint, ray guns etc. the front brake is definitely the 1969 style. 1968 makes sense, thanks for info.
