Post Sale Update: Despite attracting 17 bids, this Confederate Hellcat did not meet reserve on eBay at $12,900.
The Confederate Hellcat was the primary motorcycle of Confederate Motors, which has evolved into a high-end luxury motorcycle manufacturer. Only 500 Hellcats were built from 1996 to 2001 – at what point CM went bankrupt. After a turbulent next few years, Confederate established a new headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, and its’ approximately twelve employees now produced a total of three models.
The Confederate Hellcat features a distinctive drag race architecture – and it’s all in the quest to be America’s most substantive road bike, with aircraft grade aluminum, and expensive materials designed to maximize strength. This comes at a slight weight penalty, though. The S&S derived engine produces 120 horsepower and a similar number of torques, propelling this 500 pound bike down the street quite rapidly. We think the newer Confederates look significantly better, but you’ll be spending several tens of thousands of dollars to own a new one…
This specific Confederate Hellcat has all the factory options including front dual disc brakes, a tachometer, Merch 120 cubic inch motors and Merch aluminum billet rocker boxes. It has apparently won an award at the concourse event “Riding into History”. If you’d like to see more pictures, the seller has an album here on Photobucket for your perusal.
