Buying a high-class, high performance car is no more difficult than walking into a Ferrari or Bentley dealership and writing a big check. But what do you do if you’ve got motorcycles on your mind?
Even the most exclusive of imported motorcycles aren’t really that exclusive and buying a Harley is certainly no way to stand out. You could go the custom bike route but most custom machines are unreliable and a little bit over the top. They’re generally not very comfortable either. If you want a proper bike that oozes presence and prestige, you need to give Confederate Motorcycles a call and ask about their amazing Hellcat.
A former lawyer, Matt Chambers, who had just made himself a lot of money and wanted to pursue a passion – build motorcycles, founded Confederate Motor-cycles in 1991. Not only did he want to build bikes, he wanted them to be the very best on the market while also showcasing the talents and skills of American engineers. So he gave up his law practice and set about hiring the best people he could find to make his dream a reality. An impassioned young designer by the name of JT Nesbitt came to work for Confederate and helped Chambers revolutionize American cruiser bikes. While studying Art in college Nesbitt was so consumed with motorcycles that he almost got expelled from school for building bikes and submitting them as art projects. He and his professors had different viewpoints on what constituted art, but Nesbitt and Chambers had an immediate rapport and the result of their collaboration was the astounding Hellcat.
