I have a T100 anniversary (#184) in Fredericton New Brunswick, Canada.

Didn't buy this to stow away, enjoy riding her to much. Have had multiple bike over the last 35 years, both cruisers and sport and this is by far the bike that most excites me.

Haven't done any mods and only considering a Dart Fly Screen, which appears keeping with the style. Would love to know where the other luck 1099 owners are, or possibly 1098 as I believe 1 is still avail at a Nova Scotia dealer.

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.

Saddlebag bracket for the McQueen

Has anyone used the MC resource mounting bracket on the McQueen?
I would like to mount bags directly to the bike but not sure if the brackets are compatible with the solo seat

Well I have doing much research on saddlebags and decided to go with leatherworks bags #103. Would love to see photos of others. I will post mine when I get them.
