Look ma! I came first and second too!

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Confederate Motor Company was awarded First and Second Place Prizes at the American Motorcycle Dealer’s (AMD) World Championship of Custom Bike Building in Champions Park in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 8, 2007.

The new B120 Wraith, which began production last month, was awarded first prize / production manufacturer class and Confederate’s flagship model, the F131 Hellcat, was awarded second prize in the same category. The competition features the world’s best collection of custom motorcycles and awards prizes for excellence in motorcycle engineering and design from across the globe. The champions are awarded based on a peer judging system of fellow competitive bike builders.

“We are honored to be recognized by a jury of our peers – other builders who get the passion and determination it takes to create a motorcycle,” Matt Chambers, owner of Confederate Motor Company, said. “We are so proud of this machine and are pleased to see her making fans across the world.”

The B120 Wraith is scheduled to appear at the BUB International Motorcycle Speed Trials at the Bonneville Salt Flats September 2 – 6, where Confederate will attempt a new land speed record. Currently, Confederate Motor Company is considering sponsors for the B120 Wraith ride.

That was what Kelly sent us in from Confederate. We have featured them in our emagazine before and written about them in the blog too! More coming up in the emag next issue. Exclusively on Monoshock! We are proud to be associated with Confederate.
