TRIUMPH TRIDENT 900
I nearly choked on my elderberry gin when I saw this (I’ve been trying new things, tucked up at home on furlough again). Twelve-flippin-grand for a worthy early Hinckley Trumpet is mental – clearly, some work has been put in and it doesn’t look like a total lash-up, but equally it’s only a unimaginative café racer homage. Very few specials are worth anywhere near what they might owe in time, whether they’re part of the latest fad ‘scene’ or not. My instincts tell me it’s only worth a quarter of what they’re asking, at best. Sorry.
