Dave's Thoughts


Road Trip With 240

Start in the country and head for a show.

Black Hawks Trail, then some libation.

Then some dinner, The Vette and Pulse are similiar

Some Gas and more cruisin'

Ready for take off!!




#240 She now does "fly" Great road trip to Oregon Illinois. 125 action packed miles.





Mikes Pulse Project #240 . 170 are known to exist out of 350 built. 100 miles per gallon! 100 miles per hour!

So far this one appears to be in very good condition. Raised in Texas and moved to Michigan for a little while now resides in Illinois.

Fabricating frame to install 1100 Honda. Made a little easier by purchasing from a Forum member

It had previously been in a Litestar. Our frame needed minor mods. We still have wiring and cooling issues to resolve.

Front is as new now.  Previous owner said kids playing inside must have broken steering.

Ooops...Steering arm very bent with attachment ripped off frame. Strong kids. Luckily I had the yellow burned Pulse.

Replaced frame , brake, lines, hoses and shocks. 

Mike was getting a bit tired with project. But he kept at it.

Now it is almost painted.


  She flys!! on land.  1986 Pulse #17jtw12r6gm000240. Is now licensed. The 1100 runs out so nice.

All new brakes, shocks, tires, windshield , canopy. Next will be the stereo and extra lighting.

Not done but still looks cool on the road.

Soon to arrive from Texas Pulse number 110 1985 VIN 17JTW12J3FM000110

Goal is to restore back to original red.

Soon to arrive!!! This will be Margie's ride.





1986 Pulse 10k miles. All original. Another interesting project. technically this "car" is a licensed as three wheel motorcycle

I have to stop shopping!

1982 Freeway Vin # C1010420  Another interesting three wheel motorcycle.  A short run of 2500? an enclosed single seater.  Messerschmitt like. Has lights, wiper and is street legal. This one is all original with documentation.

Yes the ugly brown carpet is original!!

New paint, new carpet almost done, F.A.R.T. handling kit installed (excellent). Receipts for rebuild engine

New hub caps, brake cylinders resealed. Brakes, suspension, etc all excellent. Low miles and inside storage saved this one.  Original documentation. As of today 2/20/09 carb needs attention. Carpet needs to be finished.
