I might be interested in a set this summer :daumenhoch:

Hey Adiers, is the decal in this pic a Trident one? In any case, what does the writing say?

Cheers! I've never seen that one before. When I bought my frameset (from Hot Wheels) it was decal-less but I was given a set of decals which I put on myself. Mine therefore has the same black ones that are on your downtube and forks plus some different-looking red, white and grey ones. Here are a couple of pics which show the latter ones on the headtube, the seat post and chainstay.





I wonder if the red, white and grey ones were for a different model or just an earlier/later generation of decals? Interesting stuff! :daumenhoch:

So mine has a mix of first and second generation decals. Dave has been in touch with Matt Farrow who said that they (Hot Wheels) wouldn't have sold them with both sets, so that means they must have been put on by some other muppet:- that would've been me then! :uglystupid2:

I saw that one too, very nice.
I think not taking the wheels and handlebars off, putting the thing in a box and booking Paisley freight for 20 quid cost the seller a lot and missed a much bigger market.

Alright lads, thought you might be interested in finding out about the one on eBay number 43.
Planes trains and automobiles to get here to me in Ireland, but well worth the wait, to say I love it is an understatement..
Have it cleaned up she looks like new now,  it's my first time on here says I can't attach photos as they are too large??

Great to see the thread revived. A couple of noteworthy points, the text on gen one decals is " A DEVASTATING FORCE".

Also if you can keep your eyes off Andy 68's Doris you will note the second gen headstock decal applied with a first gen on the down tube. OK so that's not knew but to me it looks black. BITD I only knew of red or blue second gen decals. Please confirm.

There are definitely more out there as I knew three other mates that had them, would be interesting to know how many were made.

Time to update that register Dave.

Hi Mikku, that rings a bell almost like it was an agreed volume / batch produced.

I wonder what the deal is with the mini I have? I never knew they made a mini. Anybody else ever come across a Trident mini?
