What do you do when you crash a $60,000+ Confederate Hellcat X132? You bring it back to Confederate to repair, correct? Nope. Well the owner of this bike decided he wanted something different and the crew over at Revival Cycles was chosen. Revival’s design and fabrication skills would be put to the test on this one.
Lucky the frame, engine and electrical were still in tack from the crash and not damage. This gave the Revival crew the ability to focus on the design, but how to you one up the design of a Confederate? Well Revival shows you. They created a one off hand formed aluminum gas tank that was designed to fit on the stock back bone. Additionally the seat height and angle were raised a bit with a custom aluminum tail that flows perfectly with the tank.
When you look at the bike, you’ll notice that it looks like it is missing an exhaust. Well Revival again, hand fabricated a custom bellypan that contours the engine and completely conceals the muffler under the bike. It leaves the beautiful S&S Cycles engine visible for all to see its internals.
One of my favorite features of the entire build is the front headlight setup. Revival decided to go with a Audi S8 projector headlight hidden inside that awesome aluminum fairing. The removing bezel around the lens adds to the little details of this build. To give the bike a bit more upright riding position, Revival ditched the clip ons for a setup of low profile dirtbars. This still allows it to have that aggressive look.
After seeing the Confederate Hellcat X132 when they first released it, we didnt think it could get any better. Well Revival Cycles has created one sick looking Hellcat X132 here. If you have seen any Revival builds before, I suggest you head over to their website and social media pages. They always have something cool going on in their shop
