I have just bought a 2000 confederate plc wildcat and have not been able to find anything on the internet about the bikes specs. I called confederate, no help there. I'd like to find owners group information or anything at all to help me find out as much as I can about the bike.
thanks,

How about a history of the wildcat? why there were so few (15?) built? Why service, heck even communication, to current owners,( regardless of year of bike), is the worst I have personally ever come across. Where is a owners site? Can we start one?
Spoke with JT Nesbit a year or two ago and he was a really nice guy, but busy. Although very helpful, I could tell he had moved on to other vehicular interests.
Chambers has to be an egomaniacal, sociopathic, charlatan. He is a lawyer, after all.
Whatever he has done well, all is overshadowed by his horrific leadership, massive financial inconsistencies, and complete lack of customer service skills. I believe the motto is "first we take your check, then we check out".

David, I failed to buy the Hellcat now in your posession. The day I had set up to see it (in Barrie) was the only heavy snow we had all winter. I am now looking south for one and sorely regretting you getting the jump on me. I'd love to see it\ talk to you before I spend time & money....

My experience with Confederate has been poor. I bought a 2000 Crazy Horse with the plastic gas tank. The tank leaks and the confederate people blamed it on ethanol. While this may be true my thoughts were, how could a company that manufactures very expensive vehicles with fuel tanks not anticipate the use of a fuel that would damage the non-metal tanks? They should have fixed these plastic fiber tanks. I complained to the NTSB and the BBB. Confederate cares nothing about the brand they were not willing to assist me in fixing or replacing the tank. Now I have worked to remove any indication that my bike is or was a Confederate, and I am not alone, older confederate bikes, will lose any association with the company and just become a nameless custom bike with a good engine, which was the only thing Confederate got right. Confederate is only about the current year, it has no legacy, nor do they seem to care about one.

The Wildcats had a 27 deg. rake and shorter wheel base. These bikes were suppose to be a lower cost bike in the line up. They were not. When these bikes were being sold, so was the Confederado. The sales were not there to support the continue of manufacturing. Service from confederate has allways been an issue.
I have all the original info and CAD files of these bikes up to 2001. If any parts need to be replicated, i can help.
