Birmingham Alabama's Confederate Motorcycles is renowned for the mind-bending mechanistic design of its two-wheeled masterpieces like the Hellcat and the P51 Combat Fighter. So when an example like this 2008 Confederate Wraith B210 becomes available at auction, it is a noteworthy opportunity to invest in hand-crafted art work.
While the Harley-Davidson roots of the Wraith's 125-horsepower, 1,967cc air-cooled 45-degree V-twin are apparent, the Wraith's sweeping carbon fiber backbone frame, single-sided swingarm and striking carbon fiber girder fork make it obvious this is no mere Harley clone.
This beauty goes on the block at Bonhams Las Vegas auction Jan. 26, with an expected sale price of between $60,000 and $70,000. That gives you plenty of time to arrange that equity credit line on your house so you can ride with fellow Confederate owners Bruce Springsteen, Steven Tyler and Brad Pitt.
