    Hi everyone,

    So 1995 Triumph Trident 900

    I’ve been rebuilding this for a while after it was sat for a long time.
    Reasonably Low mileage for the age of just over 22K which may go up a little bit.
    Lots of work done recently, new clutch, brake pads, ignition coils, carbs cleaned and rebuilt, new air filter, spark plugs, battery, oil filter and change, coolant , indicators, crank position sensor, main loom cleaned and re wrapped, new indicator relay, Stainless engine bolts and Timing shims checked and changed as needed.

    Great bike, they are going up in value now as many of you probably know, I’ll be sad to see it go after all the work I’ve put into it but i will need the space and its just a bit too heavy for me.
    A few age related marks and and a small rip in the seat which i have put patches over to stop them getting worse but nothing serious.
    MOT on Monday so it will have a full 12 months.

    senssible offers

    Stunning bike ...
    Unfortunately I'm in the middle of fixing up my bike and its costing a fortune..
    If only motorbikes weren't so sensitive about angle grinders....

    I’ve no idea what a sensible offer is so what sort of ball park are you thinking?

    Well good ones currently seem to be going for 2495, Ive advertised for that elsewhere, but realistically would take less if I get zero interest. They are going up in value again now. I was expecting to re cover the seat and put 2 tyres on it as the front is a bit low on tread but it passed the MOT with no advisories and the mechanic said they were fine so i would be willing to drop a bit off the price for these

    I was trying for a mk1 Suzuki bandit not long back and saw a really nice one going for a bit over two grand...
    Bloke was in no rush to sell and reckoned he would get more than he was asking as it was a really nice bike...
    Few months later he sold it for 1200 on Ebay...
    He must have been gutted...
    I know I was as I had missed out on a stunning example....

    In my experience, the phrase "sensible offer" is an oxymoron more often than not. :joy::joy: My hubby always says, "something is worth what you can sell it for tomorrow". My take is that typically a seller thinks that what he or she's selling is worth more than it is and the potential buyer thinks it's worth less.

    Beautiful bike, Richard! :) I wish you well in selling the Trident and I hope that it get a good home like it deserves. :kissing:

    I’m well aware it’s only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, I’m just advertising it comparably to what is already out there advertised, and I think out of every one I’ve seen this is in my opinion the best.
    Everyone says It’s a beautiful bike, and its bike that is quickly becoming a modern classic and according to howmanyleft.co.uk There is less than 100 of them left, only 36 of them actually on the road.
    £2500 ish, I will probably end up taking a bit less, for a rare appreciating bike in this condition, with a full MOT (no advisories) is surly a steal.
    Also loads of them are ending up as CRK cafe racers or scramblers which I admit I thought about doing, but I actually kept it as standard as I think they have started to look good and hopefully someone will appreciate it.

    I'm afraid that if I was trying to sell a bike that I described and advertised as you have your Trident, Richard, I'd wind up keeping it!! :p:)

    I am very tempted but I just don’t have the space, I am going to be renovating more bikes and bikes parts for people and I need the space. Also I’m after something newer for myself.
