Post Listing Update: Though the BIN was $6,500, this Trident stalled and did not meet reserve with 23 bids up to $6,200 on eBay.

The Triumph Trident was the obvious solution to the engineering limitations of twin cylinder engines that had previously reigned supreme. Isle of Man TT racing bikes derived from the Trident took the production class wins from 1971-1975, with the showroom bikes going through several updates before being perfected in 1973. The 740cc triple engine was mated to a 5-speed transmission, and it finally had the legs to match the engine.

There have been other Tridents featured on Bike-Urious over the years, and they will forever have their Isle of Man TT heritage to boast about at your local show. This 1973 model (VIN: T150VAH01635) has 15,482 miles on the clock, and is advertised as having all original paint and bodywork. The mechanicals have been supposedly gone through by Baxter Cycles, the go-to source for Tridents according to Hagerty Insurance. There is no paperwork to confirm what was actually done, but the bike is being sold by a collector as a running and driving machine. See the pictures and judge for yourself.
