2000 Confederate America GT - 131 stage 2. 7900 miles. factory stock.


Very clean. only a few blemishes. rides very well. Tons of Confederate-made components from the original hand formed aluminum gas tank (not carbon fiber) through machined billet pieces like the triple tree and primary.   With an overall weight of just over 500 lbs and around 130 hp/140 torque. several hundred pounds less and twice the horsepower and torque than your typical Harley.  Original cost of bike was over $40k with engine option.    It is almost like riding a Nascar on the street. so it’s not for the inexperienced rider. Definitely catches the eye of anyone. just be prepared to talk about the bike. no matter where you ride.


Merch 131 Stage 2 engine – estimated around 130 bhp and 140 ft/lbs of monster torque.   This was around a $12k engine upgrade for the original owner from the standard S&S motor. I don’t know of any other GT or Hellcat owners with the 131 option. most are either the Merch 120 (~$5-8k upgrade) or S&S 113.   These Merch engines are built with tight tolerances and to be oil tight. with the utilization of o-rings throughout instead of typical gaskets. There is the factory Jim’s high performance oil pump. The exhaust is a 2:1 header recently coated with JetHot ceramics with a lightweight Muzzy muffler.


The frame is 120-gauge DOM carbon steel tubing. the single-backbone. double-cradle frame with three-inch outer-diameter (OD) backbone that also a 5. 5-quart oil tank – no external oil tank.  With this much oil (several quarts more than a Harley) and tank in-frame surface area. it doesn’t get anywhere near hot like a Harley typically does on a hot day.   The downtube measures 2 inches in diameter while the cradle weighs in with 1. 25- inch-OD tubes. The subframe consists of slightly less beefy 1. 125-inch tubing and is rubber mounted for vibration damping with a custom Danny Gray seat (for 2 up riding).    The swingarm is constructed of a one-by-two-inch rectangular arm of . 065-gauge chromoly braced with one-inch-OD tubing that is cantilevered. looped. and triangulated. All of these pieces are machine fit and heliarc welded. producing an inflexible frame.


Paioli 43mm inverted fork assembly offers compression and rebound damping adjustability over 5. 1 inches of travel. The Works Performance two rear dampers feature preload adjustability with over 5. 5 inches of travel.


The wheels in 3. 5x17-inch front and 6. 25x17-inch rear are light and strong with 200/50 ZR 17 rear radial with Swedish ISR Racing brakes. full-floating. cast-iron front discs and six-piston calipers and 4-piston rear caliper. The rotors do rattle like full floating rotors.


The Confederate-designed close-ratio five-speed transmission with Andrews gears with chain final drive on the right side of the bike. A hydraulically actuated Primo high performance clutch under the trick billet primary-drive-belt cover engraved Confederate logo.


I installed super-bright. new generation Custom Dynamics LED turn and brake lights. replacing the old generation bulbs.


Being a 14 year old bike. there are a couple of blemishes. primarily just normal wear and tear from riding.   I am the third owner. first owner was an elderly gentleman and it was too much bike for him.   The second adult owner and his wife put a majority of the miles on the bike.   There is some paint peeling around gas cap. near speedo. a small black mark on side of tank just above logo (barely noticeable) along with the typical marks and blemishes from riding. Things I would change over time are the front rotors; the full floating rotor rattle is aggravating at times. The tires are excellent. Just had the front fork seals and fluids changed by a professional Ducati shop.  Recently had the header ceramic coated inside and outside by JetHot 1300F Extreme (silver polished. almost looks like chrome).   The only thing that had to be changed was the ignition module (previous owner).   The battery will probably need to be changed sooner or later. but is good. Everything I stated. is to the best of my knowledge.   Currently. riding the bike. so mileage will gradually increase.


The reason I am selling. changing jobs (merger). working overseas.   This is my third America GT. don’t want to sell. but this bike doesn’t need to sit. it wants to be ridden.   No warranty implied.   Selling bike locally. so auction could close at any time.
