Anybody know if a twin 650 will fit in a Trident frame? Without a bunch of cutting of course...

Don't know anyone that has done it, as they are uglier that the average 60's twin frame, but the 71-on oil in frame design was a Rob North design for the trident engine. I have seen a couple of the OIF frames with Trident engines, so I'm presuming the reverse would be similarly simple.

One of my mates built a nice chop using a trident triple frame and a 750 unit twin engine,and as soon as he is back from holidays Ill ask him what needed changing.

Re: Triumph Trident Frame question

Talked to my mate today ,and when he used the triple frame(early trident) he had to fabricate new front engine mounts ,this was the only major change to take the 650 unit motor(750 morgo top end). He used spacers to get the correct engine off-set for rear chain alignment as the triple frame is wider, and he couldnt remember if the engine plates at the rear were a straight bolt on as he made custom ones anyway as it was built for show and go. Hope that helps
