Not a Yamaha, but

For those into engine porn.

My 1975 T160 Trident was burning a bit of oil, so having missed out on a few weekend aways due to lockdown, I saved my money and gave the bike through to Grin Triumph in Kennoway, Fife. He is a one man operation with a great rep for auld Triumphs.

I dropped it off in March and picked it up a couple of days ago.

He stripped the top end and rebored the barrels out to +20 and fitted new pistons. He also fitted new valves, guides, springs etc and vapour blasted all components.

Apologies it's not a Yam, but hey...the sharp eyed will note that the vacuum covers on the carb gantry are actually Yam parts, so qualifies

There were two versions. The T150 which ran in tandem with the R3, and the T160 (mine) which was the 2nd version, but had the sloping engine similar to the R3. The T160 has an electric foot as well 

The T150, according to the critics was the better, faster, lighter bike, but the T160 was by far the best looking bike Triumph/BSA built
