T100 110th Anniversary Special

What a looker this is.

& with only 1000 being sold worldwide, it's got a good chance of being the one to collect (if that's what you do with your bike.)
Me likey.

Called into my Triumph dealer today to tell them about Jeff. & while I was there I threw a leg over the 110 Anniversary model they've got in (No 249 out of 1000). Beautiful bike, with an amazing fit & finish. But it's totally let down by the seat, which is the same ironing board that the stock Scrambler suffers with. The stock T100 SE seat is much more comfortable, & stylish to boot. I can't understand why Triumph went with that seat on a bike that's $3K more than the SE.. It'd be the first thing I'd change if I bought one, which is highly unlikely. Though that paint job is even better looking in the metal, & the brightwork is truly stunning. Nice bike, shame about the perch.

If it is the same seat as on the T100 HAP has mine, currently being used as a cheese board...
Can't see much special except for some decals and a number.

I like the 110th Anniversary Bonnie more than the McQueen Bonnie.

We had to use it as a ramp for the cement truck to get in the back yard. Wonderful ramp. Kept the yard safe from ruts and all. What more could you ask of a seat?

You can always restore it later after the engine blows

The real puzzler is why Triumph didn't use the SE seat, which they've got in the parts bin, & is a much better perch.

If I bought one, I'd try & get a seat swap as part of the deal. Though that might affect it's collectability, I'm with Dog on that one. Ride 'em first. Collect 'em if they survive the riding.
