    Confederate has some wicked engineering going on with their recent bikes. Cant say I like the result, but I love the ideas.

    I never really think of regulations like emission standards and such, that really does explain a lot about where all the marvels of the past have gone.
    Since we are on the topic of Confederate, IMHO the heyday of confederate was 2001 to 2005. That is when JT nesbit was actively designing for them. The wraith and the redesigned hellcat were his designs. Anything that confederate is producing now is stuff JT was designing 10 years ago. The new "designer" they have basically is just dressing up what has already been designed, no hard engineering going on there.

    but I am biased cuz JT is my buddy.

    Back to the posted pics for a moment...
    I think it does have an odd squatty proportion but if you look at old "high performance bikes" and especially racers, they all seem kinda low and long when weighed visually against modern bikes.
    That being said, while I lust for lust for an HRD Vincent I too would hoon Mr.Li's creation all over and fly the bird to anyone who wants to whine about it.
    The guy had a dream and followed up without bilking anyone else outta funds doing so. He owned (owns?) the rights to the marque so he coulda slapped a decal on some build in Cambodia hunk of trash and been well within his rights.......THEN the purists would have something worth gnashing their teeth over.



    'hoon' seemed appropriate.....
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.
