This is my Trident 750 which I ran as a weekend bike for a couple of years and took part in runs like the DGR 2016 and 2017 before taking it off the road to carry out a full rebuild into a café racer based on the Café Racer Kits modules.
I removed the original Trident subframe, tank, seat, mudguards, headlight, rear light, chainguard, instruments and silencer and replaced them with the CRK Seat, Tank, Mudguard, Headlamp, Rear light and Instrument modules together with their chainguard, hugger and silencer. See their website for more details of the parts which include an alloy 14.5 litre petrol tank bonded to a fibreglass outer and a neat alloy expansion tank for the radiator: CRK Triumph T300 Kits (caferacerkits.co.uk)
I also incorporated white dials from a Triumph Daytona, new handlebar grips, bar-end mirrors and a new throttle cable. The original engine was replaced with a later black Trident unit from a 1996 bike.
I fitted a new chain and sprocket set. The swinging arm bushes, bearings and seals were replaced. The wheels were powder coated gold by McNealy Brown and all of the wheel bearings and seals were replaced and the brakes refurbished. The electrics were tidied up and the battery replaced with a sealed Lithium-Ion unit.
Carl Rosner rebuilt the front forks – replacing the seals and bushes and they also replaced the carb floats and main jets and MOT’d the bike to 4 September 2021.
Performance 1 Coatings applied a new matt black ceramic finish to the existing three-into-one exhaust pipes.
Paul’s One-Off Customs then painted the tanks, seat unit and front mudguard metallic blue and finished it off with four coats of clear. Paul included the bike in his gallery of recent work:
The price includes an Abba Workshop stand, all of the CRK instruction sheets and an original Triumph owners handbook.
