Hello owners and potential owners. Let's see if we can track the First Strike numbers to their target number of 500. Also be sure to inform your dealers and future owners of this forum site. Also, since the Livewires are finally going to other countries put your location also. Let's see if we can get 500 replies to this thread.

Does anyone know if the magical 500 has been cracked yet? I'm collecting mine Tuesday, hopefully i'll get something in the mail!
Last number I saw was for a bike sold in early August and it was #494. Number 500 was auctioned off by Harley in July. So that left only 5 to be First Strike bikes. Hope you make it.

Behold First Strike 001//500

View attachment 421

kept in a very secure location in a cage with a few hundred price bike at the HD museum.

I'm sure they mentioned that it is common practice at HD to save the first bike of any new model. They have been doing that since the beginning. I've been in that room and great bikes in there!

Mine is #14 of the first 500 - purchased Oct 2019

*or #2 = consumer if you count:
#1 is in the museum
#2 is the last Presz'
#3-#12 went to directors (although I've been hearing some dirs are giving them up and selling their bikes to reg joes.)

022 // 500, VIN: 0232, Location: Northern California.

H-D dealer looked it up and said: this unit was first sold 10/??/19, in San Diego CA. And had spent time in Reno?
I picked it up from a local EuroCycle dealer with 640 mi on the odometer. The FS medallion was broken, and no one at the dealership knew anything about the wall plaque. One can only speculate as to how the medallion was broken and where the wall plaque ended up. I removed the charge door with medallion, for safe keeping, I didn’t want to loose the Lower part with the #s. There is a Rizoma door in it’s place now.
If anyone out there in Livewire land can add to the history, it would be greatly appreciated.

Since you now own the bike, I'd ask HDMC for a new medallion to replace this one.
There should be a "part" for it... even if it's not a common one in the parts book.
How hard can it be to make a new one?
