Written by an enthusiast with many years experience of working on classic British motorcycles – but with little experience of working on these iconic machines – this book covers the complete dismantling, refurbishment, and rebuilding of two Tridents: a 1973 Triumph T150V and a 1975 Triumph T160.

Over 650 colour photographs and detailed text descriptions clarify every stage … engine, gearbox, clutch, electrics, frame, wheels, forks, swinging arm, brakes, instruments … the whole bike!
Highly readable, and written with , the author readily admits to the various pitfalls and mistakes he makes in order for others to avoid them.
Designed to sit alongside existing workshop manuals, this book is intended to help the owner complete any restoration operations that are omitted from repair manuals. Essential garage literature!

Independent Reviews

From reassembling the primary chaincase to refitting the electrics, it looks like everything you’d need is in here.
Bike Rider Magazine

A definite asset for any Trident or Rocket 3 owner.
Real Classic

I would have no hesitation in recommending that every shed or garage that contains an early Trident or Rocket III should also contain this book.
Old Bike Mart

…this book could be a time, money and frustration-saving asset…
Ultimate MotorCycle

What we especially like is the friendly, everyday tone… It’s said that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Well if so, you’re in pretty safe hands here. Recommended.

Written in a totally new way… informative and entertaining at the same time… this is an excellent book for first-time and more experienced restorers; and could well save you far more than the purchase price by helping you
