Hi there, here’s my ‘59 chopper, I bought it generally like this in 2016, changed the bars and the tank and pipes and stuff but she’s mostly how I got her. Chopped in the 70’s or maybe 80’s? Was running Saturday morning and was broke by sat night, but I’m working on it!

Here is what i believe to be one of a very few Trident T160 chops left in one piece in the UK it had been stored for the last 30 years until i rebuilt it in 2017.

Pic is from an Englishman's site (British Iron), but I think I saw the word "Japan" in the caption. Does anybody recognize it? The photo is at least five years old.

Guessing you're asking for more-info on it from someone who knows it? That's a very practical bike, from the looks of it, though I'd want a front brake instead of a spool hub. That's the kind-of bike that you can ride and it won't wear you out because of crappy suspension. Unit construction twin-carb from what I can see, very clean. Looks to-be a 21" front hoop?

Pre-unit with a nine-bolt (unit) head. I absolutely agree about the rideability and the dearth of front brake. Spools look great but you have to shape your riding style around them, i.e. beginning to slow down a longer distance from upcoming corners. Not to even bother with the safety argument. (We are preaching to the choir here.)

From the primary side, and with the later cyl head, I took a guess on it being a unit-construction, I wouldn't know how to differentiate from the view, unless I saw the right side.

One of the domestic magazines used a novice, an experienced rider and an Expert-class roadracer, on identical bikes, hell, maybe even the same bike, I don't exactly-recall. They went to the testing grounds and conducted a series of braking exercises. It was something like rear brake only, front and rear brakes together, then maybe a panic stop. All done at several speeds. Of course the novice's results were much-farther than the other two. The surprising part was that the novice's 'rear-brake only' efforts were hundreds of feet further at the higher speed tested.

The way people around here behave (speaking of where I live), I want all the equipment to do the best job it can, protecting me until that "oh SH_T!" moment that's going to keep you out of the hospital.

so with a 9 stud head that has push in header pipes, which model pipes are they then with the kink under the primary cover?

My mistake! That's a <1963 head, i.e., eight-bolt. The rocker boxes looked at first like the later, more extensively finned ones that fit the nine-bolt.
