No objection from me!  :daumenhoch:

Mine's 983093, which Voris confirmed to be the 93rd bike made in Sep 1983. Hutchman, that would make yours the 48th that month. Voris also said that, "Frames were numbered as they came off the welding line. The next frame could have been a VDC or a Star or a National Pro. So the sequence doesn't tell you too much."

68301...... Does that mean what I think it means?!!!!!  "wantit"   Voris emailed me last yr to confirm its identity, I'll try find it. He also said they slightly varied,  depending on what bits of tubing they had lying about or if there was a specific customer requirement.

They were built for Graham Merry (Hotwheels) for anyone who doesn't know.

Scuse the Doris.........

There are already a few pics of mine in the museum section but here's a couple more:-





This is in complete survivor condition and hasn't been touched for about 8 years now. Will try to get round to doing something with it when I'm next back in :Great_Britain:  ;D

Another year and I've still done nothing with mine!  :idiot2:  I was originally planning on selling it but now I'm not so sure, given their rarity and that fact that it's only ever had one owner, namely me!! Plus it was and probably always will be the nearest I'll get to owning a Changa, and I do like the low-slung lines. In any case, my planned visit to the UK (& therefore MK) this summer has fallen through so the Trident is going to have to wait yet another year for some attention!!  :daumenhoch:

Dave,

Adrian is "Adiers" on here. The bike in question is on a F/B page. Looks nice. Would need a full de-chrome for show build as it's quite rusty.
One build a year, the only way to get it right. No rushing involved.

Great to see another one!! Time to update that list Dave!!  :daumenhoch:

What are your plans for it Aiders?

I'm definitely back in England this summer so am going to dig mine out of storage and hopefully give it the attention it deserves, with a possible appearance at MK15. Looking forward to it!!

Excellent! Looking forward to seeing it brought back to its former glory! Have a word with Clint ("DY85262") about decals.  :daumenhoch:
