With their unique blend of styling, technology and GP-quality components, Confederate’s products emphatically back their maker’s claim. Founded in 1991 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by Matt Chambers, Confederate Motor Company set out to create motorcycles “utilizing a holistic, avant-garde process for celebrating the art of rebellion.” It is an approach that has given Confederate a public profile out of proportion to its relatively small size. Many a movie star and rock star own Confederates but the company is more than just about flashy looks with nothing in the tank – in the last few years the company has achieved more than one land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
The company’s first motorcycle rolled off the production line there on November 11, 1994, and over 500 first generation Hellcat models were built until the firm temporarily closed their doors in 2001. The Confederate G1 Hellcat was produced from 1999 – 2001 and sported S&S or TP Motors power plants.
The 2000 Confederate G1 Hellcat on offer here hails from a Northern California collector. He purchased it a couple of years ago as an art piece, putting but a handful of miles on the machine before detailing it and setting it on static display. Now, showing 9,081 miles on the odometer, the bike presents exceptionally well. In excellent condition throughout, the bike has the TP Motors v-twin at its heart. The black livery shows the clean lines of the machine, and the weave of the carbon fiber tank looks fantastic.
Fresh from inspection and recommissioning, the bike runs as it should, with enough torque to tow a building. All cycle parts are in excellent condition and work perfectly, as do all electrical systems.
The bike is to be sold with a clean, clear California title and current registration.
