Cool 30th Anniv. Ed. 87 1100

Hi all... New to the forum, I recently purchased an 87 1100 with 2500 miles for 2 k. Its an anniversary edition. In these posts I have seen where other owners know what production number theirs is, ie... # 28 of 650 .... or 250 of 650 and so forth. I am in desperate need to find out which number mine is. Open to all help. Also I saw where people had a certificate of authenticity.... which I also would appreciate any info on. Having called HD in Wisconson..... they couldnt tell me. So I will leave it up to the people who obviously know better and patiently await any answers.

I have an '86 Liberty . Been a good bike so far. Top end has been redone. Damage repaired after getting hit from the rear. I think I'm #12.

New bikes ain't that great. Too many Nanny sensors and enough wires to choke a horse!
