"Confederate Motorcycles deserves every bit of the credit for designing almost ceaselessly interesting motorcycles, though no motorcycle maker has gotten so much press and built so few motorcycles. Since 1991, Confederate has built and delivered all of an estimated 650 units. Here's an idea of the kind of people who have been spotted on the seat of a Confederate: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Stephen Tyler, Ryan Reynolds, Eddie Van Halen, David Beckham and others.

The Wraith was co-designed by Ed Jacobs and Paul Adams. The carbon fiber backbone frame and aluminum engine-mounting plates, engage the eye with their contours and material contrast, but are darn hard to make. The cycle parts - like the ISR clutch and brake controls, the aluminum linkages in the carbon fiber girder fork and the detailing on the carbureted 120ci JIMS counterbalanced 120 horsepower, 135lbft of torque engine and proprietary Confederate "short" primary drive/"vertical 5-speed close ratio" gearbox – enhance the eyes' experience. With the chassis damping and geometry set-up, the Wraith can be ridden like sport bike. Lightweight BST carbon fiber wheels are complimented by the tire choice: "in sensible widths."

How many of the MSRP $92,000 Wraiths have been made is unknown but it's thought to be many less than 100. Thus this two owner bike, to catalog specification and with only 300 miles on its odometer, remains essentially in showroom condition, and is a unique opportunity to acquire a piece of handmade modern American sculpture – that just happens to offer "Art for Riding's Sake," says Mark Hoyer of Cycleworld.
