Triumph Bonneville T100 Steve McQueen Special Edition Motorcycle

Since 1902, Triumph has been producing distinctive motorcycles celebrated for their style and engineering. Through the 50’s and 60’s, names such as Steve McQueen and Marlon Brando cemented the Triumph legend. In 1991, Triumph was reborn remaining true to its heritage. And because the Steve McQueen’s name continues to sell motorcycles, Triumph is releasing a Special Edition limited to just 1100 bikes carrying his name. Each of them will be delivered (price to be announced) in matt khaki Green paint job, Steve McQueen’s signature on the side covers, a solo seat, blacked out headlamp, luggage rack, wheel rims, hubs, handlebars, rear springs, mirrors, and mudguard supports, and arrived individually numbered, with a plaque on the handlebar clamp and a certificate of authenticity.

    Certificate of authenticity= Authentic/offical reproduction of the original.

    You know, like real simulated indian turquoise 🙂

    Can I jump a fence with it?

    Ah….. if your talking about jumping large barbed wire fences…..
    That would be names like Bud Ekins……

    Very true ……. Ekins did the riding but Mc Queen was open about this and publically acknowledged Ekins did it, not him

    Original T-100s were 500 cc engined. Seems this one is simply a special paint job and far from an authentic replica. I’ll be surprised if they sell 1100 of them !

    Triumph, the most successful rebirth of a motorcycle company in modern times. These guys just keep on rocking.

    How’d they get him to sign it ???

    What next an Elvis Harley ( sorry some think he is still out there, maybe practicing his Signature for a Viva V-BIKE )……….By the way the JUMP bike was not a Triumph nor a Harley, it was of some European origin…..forget the BRAND…………………Hey CYRIL would you like someone putting your name to a BIKE that you had no say in its design…………

  14. 14 Dave Nov 19th, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    Olive, its a genuine authentic reproduction of his signature. There’s even a Certificate of Authenticity, signed with an authentic reproduction of his signature to prove it.

    Chop,

    RE:
    “….By the way the JUMP bike was not a Triumph …”

    Where’d you get that idea?
    Been working on em most of my life it sure looks like a pre-unit Triumph to me…..(???)

    Pretty sure it was a ’61 or ’62 Triumph with beefed up forks that actually did the jump, and I remember for sure there were 2 or 3 actually used in the movie.

    Way cool nostalgic bike! My first bike was a 650 Triumph, then a 67 Triumph Chopper, Always a soft spot in my heart for old trumpets.Thanks for showing it , Cyril.

    Nice bike anyway looks good too.

  19. 19 Richard Jan 21st, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    I like the bike but I would have added:

    1. Knobby treaded tires
    2. A saddle seat of nice tanned leather rather than a flat padded one
    3. Half blackened over glass on the front headlamp ( military bikes used this to prevent pinpoint bombing at night )
    4. wider handle bars
    5. kick start
    6. bed-roll holder over front fender/forks
    7. foot boards rather than pegs
