Rewind Magazine interviews Matt Chambers

The following is an excerpt from Singapore’s Rewind Magazine interview with Matt Chambers, CEO/Founder Confederate Motors, Inc.

Tim McIntyre: You have said “Through machine and brand, [we] encourage a new approach where every person is nurtured to be what they were born to be, in harmony with what’s going on inside themselves.” Why is this important?

Matt Chambers: Confederate embodies Anti-Taylorism. Frederick Winslow Taylor developed theories of human efficiency which resulted in bureaucrats trained to manage our algorithmic output. This theory diminishes heuristic creativity, which is the source of human growth and progress. Thusly, we mandate handmade craftsmanship created autonomously with acute engagement.

Tim McIntyre: What else is wrong with the state of the bike industry today?

Matt Chambers: Not enough heart; too much focus on short term cash accumulation!

Tim McIntyre: What does design integrity mean to you? What is your definition of great design? Can you cite examples?

Matt Chambers: The cornerstone of design integrity is purity expressed honestly. This can only occur through activation of individualists soulful intuition. Deep yearning and engagement are at the root of this process.

Tim McIntyre: And what does good engineering mean to you?

Matt Chambers: Perfection of structural integrity, permanent fatigue resistance, street motoring geometry, harmonious component specification with maximum torque.

Tim McIntyre: What in your opinion is the essence of a Confederate motorcycle?

Matt Chambers: Spiritually, we say contempt for ingratiation fuels humilities defeat of pride activating man-in-revolt celebrating the art of rebellion. Dynamically, Hunter S. Thompson said it best, “Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube.”

Tim McIntyre: Tell me a bit about the Fighter?

Matt Chambers: It expresses a direct challenge to establishmentarian thought.

Tim McIntyre: Who are your customers? Can you walk us through the buying process.

Matt Chambers: Our client is a motorcycling purist and aficionado with a love for true to concept American industrial and mechanical design. Our buying process is entirely buyer-centric. We seek gentlemanly engagement at the precise level which is most satisfactory to our client.
Tim McIntyre: What have you enjoyed most about your journey so far with Confederate motorcycles?

Matt Chambers: The best efforts of our team to deliver on the promise of organic, pure, honesty.

Tim McIntyre: And the part you’ve enjoyed the least?

Matt Chambers: The shock of hurricane Katrina and its aftermath; which, paradoxically, was what we needed to become the tough, strong company we are today.

Tim McIntyre: Looking back, is there anything you would have done different?

Matt Chambers: I have made many mistakes; my personal manner is to transparently admit my mistakes to myself, prayerfully acknowledge deeply felt contrition, seek forgiveness and, then, let it go. Repeating such emotion may deem one to a repetitive cycle.

Tim McIntyre: What’s next for man and company?

Matt Chambers: Our team has developed a new American heirloom architecture from which we derive a veritable onslaught of new modular relevant machines for the 2011, 2012, and 2013 pipeline. Because we are well-grounded by deeply nurturing ideals and principles, our new machines will explosively activate each owner’s inner man-in- revolt.
