Nice Bike... I wonder if Leno'll get one...?

Just got my copy of the Neiman-Markus aka Needless Mark-up Christmas Book.

Through the years, NM has offered some very exclusive and limited gifts for the 'Uber-Fortunate' including: a Private Carribean Island, Extremely Limited Edition cars - RRs, Ferraris, BMWs, Sable Coats for your Cabbage Patch doll, even His/Her Ancient Egyptian sarcophagi.

Well, this year is no different. They are offering an incredible looking limited edition custom Bike from the Confederate Motor Company - the Fighter. Confederate is the maker of some truly leading edge and innovative motorcycles. Priced at $110k and limited to just 45 units - Confederate Motor Company - Limited-Edition Fighter Motorcycle

I wonder if Jay Leno, who already has a pretty impressive collection of rare and custom motorcycles, including a turbine powered custom bike by Marine Turbine Technologies utilizing a C18 Allison Rolls Royce jet engine, originally designed to power the Bell Jet Ranger helicopter, will add this to his collection? I dunno... might not be expensive enough for Jay.

I know bikes are VERY personal taste, but that "Fighter" looks awfully bizaar to me.

Cycle World had a write up on the Wraith a couple years back, but I had never seen anything about this one...certainly beats the hell out of the OCC abortions, but I'll stick with my boring and conventional ZX10R.

Interesting design but I'm not sure I like the fork. Wouldn't you get a muddy trail up the back of your tuxedo without a rear fender? Even in sunny CA you'd run through a street being watered by a wayward sprinkler. Wouldn't be very cool to have a stripe up your back.

+1 on OCC. Their "theme" bikes all have the same basic design with just some radical paint job. I get tired of their constant fighting. They ought to appreciate the time they have to work together. Some of my most cherished times are working on cars with my dad.

I've been to WCC several times. Jesse James' stuff can have a similar look too, but Jesse's cool. He's a common guy and doesn't take any sh#t. Below are a couple of bikes in his shop (yes one is Shaq's).

I don't think Leno will be dropping 110 gir for a new toy. He'll be unemployed in 8 months. He may have to sell off some of his collection. Even the rich have to face reality in these tough times.

In my petite world, that 27" seat height is *almost* worth the $110. Its pretty cool looking, too, although it looks like a body stretch from the seat to the handlebars. I wouldn't mind test driving it.
