Confederate Hellcat sighting?

MH,

I was out and about today at noon and on Westheimer, west of B8, I think I saw a Confederate Hellcat. Not certain, but it had that very distinctive frame style, and man did it look different. Has anyone else spotted one of these $50,000 Alabama custom bikes around Houston? They have got to be truly rare.

On that topic, check out the new Indian 111 engines....Polaris sounds like they are revving up some serious bikes.

That's what I thought too. LSFM has a Grumman Hellcat F6F-5 in flying status. I've seen it flying formation with B17 over Galveston beach. They occasionally fly over my house. Too bad it's a single seater so you can't do rides in one like you could with their Texan and P-51 trainer.

50k? Maybe used and with a ton of miles. Look at their web page. They make them only if ordered and are 130k new.

According to their site the Hellcat is $55k and the R131 Fighter starts at $100k. The Hellcat isn't cheap but it's beautiful.
