While it's lacking by at least half in the wheels department, we had to show off the new Wraith, a $50,000 motorcycle built by Confederate Motor Company of Louisiana. It's the product of a major effort by designer JT Nesbitt to create a "true American design," that forms a bridge between fine art and vehicle design. The concept bike, which looks like a Cafe racer (of the 1960s), built by Fritz Lang (from the 1920s) using modern technologies, will be offered for sale beginning in October of this year.
