Come May/June they should start arriving at the Dealers.
1,100 of the Steve McQueen SE's will be manufactured, a little over 300 (?) will be imported to the U.S. Each will have a plaque between the handlebar with an identifing number (1/1,100 etc.).
I thought it would be interesting to keep track of as many Triumph Steve McQueen SE T100's as possible.
When you receive your Steve McQueen T100 check in with your special identifing number, Country & State.
And don't forget to post pictures of your new Triumph Steve McQueen SE!
Steve would be spinning in his grave for his name to be put to a machine made in the Far East. I am sure the family will be happy with the commission $1k or so I would think for each sale.

Pat,

I doubt it.

His son Chad helped Triumph on the design. I'm sure he would be fine with what they were able to get through the bureaucracy in every market Triumph operates in. Besides, McQueen Racing and TP USA have a version closer to Chad's original vision for the bike as well.

Pat, why are you trolling? I notice you've got your ride listed as a Thai Triumph and you've been bitching about it in other threads. Why come here and troll the SMcQ owners? You seem to have a chip on your shoulder about the fact that Triumph build bikes in the Far East. If it bothers you that much, flog your T100 and buy something else. Maybe a nice all-American Harley would suit you

P.S. Your sig is bollocks - your bike was assembled in Chonburi. Nowhere does it say Made in Hinckley.

^^^ he must be bored.. I will ignore it... Anyhow, been a while since posting on here! Spent the rest of summer and fall riding and working. I love how the SMQ rides. It is my new commuter bike. I will let the R3 rest up for the longer rides. I see there is a group forming to attend the FoSM car show at the Boys Republic! Awesome! Wife and I have attended the lsat 2 years for the LeMans and BULLITT themed events. We drove our Mustang BULLITT both years. I would love to go to the 2013 event with our Bonnie, but after 2 years of westward trips, we will be heading east this year to NY. I wish you all the best and a safe trip! If you havne't been before, you will LOVE it! A great show for a great cause. The boys there are so appreciative. It's snowing here now, so riding season is most definetely over!! dang...

That's not right. My BMW dealer even uses special signed stickers to prove service was a factory authorized dealer. Find another dealer!

why?

considering McQueen was married to an actress who was from Asia (the mother of his two children) my hunch is I don't think he would harbour any strong anti-asian sentiments.

Pat,
Here is your warning - This is a global community not an American or British Community. Where the Bonneville is assembled is completely irrelevant and you do not speak on behalf of a long dead actor or his estate.

If you don't like the McQueen edition Bonneville you are free to say so. If it bugs you as much as it seems you are free to contact the McQueen Estate who authorized Triumph to build it, otherwise can it or I'll ban it.

Was there ever any 'official' word on where all the SMQ bikes went throughout the world?
