Confederate Hellcat Revival 140

We’re all familiar with whole “when life gives you lemons” cliche, but who would have thought Revival Motorcycles would help a client of theirs turn a small mishap on his stock Confederate Hellcat into a hand-formed and CNC machined metallic machine? Well, that’s exactly what happened after a brake failure brought this bike into the Revival shop.

The goal here was to build a proper tribute to the original Confederate Hellcat. Therefore, the original engine, frame, and suspension were left alone for the most part. Instead, a hand-formed alloy fuel tank was built to fit the Hellcat’s unique shape and a CNC-machined subframe was fabricated to mirror the original as well. They also outfitted the bike with a bespoke leather seat from the Revival shop, fitted a hand-formed alloy tail section on the ride, a pair of panels that now cover the oil cooler and the air intake, a Xenon projector headlight from an Audi S8, a new stainless steel exhaust featuring a 2-into-1 silencer, and a new hand-shaped bellypan made from alloy was also outfitted on the bike. All told, the final product weighs in at less than 500 pounds and delivers 140 foot-pounds of torque. A serious ride that’s for sure.
