The dealer I bought my bike from had gotten one of the Steve McQueen bikes. I never noticed the issue number. He got calls from dealers all over the country trying to get it from him, so he knew there was huge demand for it.
He put it on Ebay at $2,000 over MSRP, it didn't sell though there were a great many "tire kickers" sending inquires referring to "if it doesn't sell, e-mail me..."
He got a call two days after the auction ended, and it was a guy who said he worked for a certain guy who wanted the bike. How much money would be required to be wired over for the bike and delivery to NYC? He thought it was going to go nowhere, but the ridiculous amount of money was in his account the next morning. He delivered it the following weekend and it turns out the bike went to a very famous attorney/investor/playboy who just buys whatever he wants whenever he wants it.
Must be nice.
