For Sale: 1989 Pulse Autocycle in HOLT, Missouri

Vehicle Description

The Pulse was designed by aircraft designer Jim Bede and was built by the Owosso Motor Car Company. It was preceded by the Scranton, Iowa-produced Litestar, and according to the Litestar and Pulse registry, approximately 36 Litestar and 329 Pulse vehicles were built between 1985 and 1990. The Owosso-built fiberglass body of this example is fitted over a steel tube frame and is finished in silver with red, black, and orange graphics and pinstriping. The cockpit is enclosed by a sliding canopy, and additional exterior details include a retractable halogen headlight.

The front primary wheel measures 13″ and is mounted with a Hankook tire, while a Dunlop tire is mounted on the 15″ rear primary wheel. Fiberglass-skirted outriggers are equipped with 8″ trailer wheels. Braking is handled by hydraulic discs at both ends, and adjustable shock absorbers were added by the owner.

The cockpit features include a heater, and an AM/FM/CB radio.

The two-spoke steering wheel fronts a VDO gauge cluster including a 10k-rpm tachometer, a 120-mph speedometer, and auxiliary gauges. The odometer shows 11k miles.

The 1,182cc liquid-cooled flat-four was sourced from a Honda GL1200 Gold Wing, and power is sent to the rear wheel through a five-speed manual gearbox and a shaft drive.

The autocycle is equipped with an electric reverse gear, was fitted with an upgraded clutch slave cylinder, and an oil change was performed in anticipation of the sale.

A custom-built trailer, that has never been used, is included in the sale and is also shown in the pictures.

This Pulse is one of the last built- number 327.
