Carbon tank and a projector headlight... cool. :P

B91 Wraith? That frame is an eye sore.


EDIT: 67,500 double cheeseburgers for the bike pictured above!? My head hurts now.

I like the look much better than any other chopper I have seen out there. Too bad it still has a Harley motor in it. Drop a RC51 motor in it and we are talking!

Looks ok, but I'd much rather have that custom standard in the other thread.

And no freakin way for 67k.

Could be a mirrored photo?! Are Harley's right side drive? Man I should know that being from Milwaukee! I don't think they are....

I think its rather cool from a design and engineering standpoint.... but not for me... and no where near worth $67k. They are just FUGLY! Both of them!

I'd rather blow that on a night with Sporty!

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

Blow what on Sporty?

Too much money, not an RC-51 motor. Ok, we can close the thread.

I was guessing confederate cycle when I first looked at it. It is a very sweet bike.

I thought the same thing too when I first saw it...

Interesting bike, but not worth my $65K, I will save that for the Desmosidici.

Oh, but I'm guessing for your $67K you get reliability and customer service that's off the charts.

When it first came out a few years ago, it was going for $42k. With the big boom in "customs" they're gouging!

The bike does have a bunch of cool things. Exhaust is part of the swing arm.

Garage
Last I heard, Confederate was having a lot of problems due to Katrina. I guess the hurricane trashed their plant pretty badly. I think they moved recently so they could start production again.
