    Correct, the T-160 Trident engine was the only year of the forward slanting top end which was built into the design to accommodate the electric start assembly located behind the cylinders.

    My personal favorite.

    I still feel that the T160 is the most beautiful motorcycle ever put out by anyone.

    I agree although I do have a sentimental attachment to Pre Units, they just do it for me as well.

    This is my second T-160 Trident, I owned one many years ago and foolishly sold it. Missed it instantly and finally found this one to bring home. It stays.

    I have owned a ton of Triumph twins, still have a Bonneville and a Daytona but the triple really blows wind up my skirt...! :lol3

    DSCN0376.JPG DSCN0282.JPG DSCN0401.JPG Sold both T-160's 3 summers ago. My 03 Bonny bought new still here. The custom was the wife's, her left hand carpel tunnel and bad back put an end to riding it. She is no longer a geezer rocker but now on a 150cc 16" wheel scooter and now a "Mocker"!! My Trident was not getting used much cause of the Bonny but I do miss it had it over 40 years.

    The 4G was quite a refined machine but I never understood why Selly Oak persisted with the Anstey plunger instead of adopting the later and vastly superior swinging arm frame.

    Lovely bike. In my view, Val Page's NH/VH engine was the best English single ever made.
