The Trident triple is arguably the most unusual choice of motive power for a Trident. The example offered is built around a slimline featherbed frame declared manufactured in 1965 with the 1972 Trident T150 engine being installed in 1991 when it was registered with the age related number it retains. It was run for approximately a year, covering about 130 miles before being laid up until 2010 when it was purchased by the vendor. The vendor undertook its recomissioning/restoration which included overhauling the inoperative rear brake and the Lockheed front brakes, sorting the electrical system out, stripping and cleaning the carburettors and fitting the Bill Roberts Racing bodywork.

The vendor describes the engine as "starting easily and not burning oil", the bodywork as "good" and chrome as being absent of rust. The electrical system all functions correctly and the cycle parts are described as being in good condition. It is offered with a Swansea V5C and an Mot certificate valid until April 2014.
