Found this on the web, and it took me back in time.

Alastair Laurie.

I remember reading about his Tridents in the early eighties in Bike. (I Think it was Bike Magazine).
One green and this read one.
Both of them had holes drilled in every possible location to save some weight.
Made me crave for a Trident with Rob North frame for years to come...

Shiny!
Thanks for sharing those pics.
Somewhere I've a picture of a V6 engine made from a pair of Trident/Rocket 3 blocks on a common crankcase --- I saw it at a classic bike show a couple of years ago. The threes were always a bit special ... when the Bonnies etc seemed to be two-a-penny.

Big pat on the back to your old man from me for still blasting round at an age where he should know better and an age where we all hope we will all be doing the same.
Hope your dad has many more miles in him.:thumbup:
