Motor Luge Homebuilt Motorcycle


Motor Luge Homebuilt Motorcycle

The MotorLuge started off as a 1985 Honda Interceptor 700 motorcycle. It was built by morphing the seating position of a sports car with the riding characteristics of a motorcycle. It was built in hopes to allow someone to really feel how fast a motorcycle can accelerate because of this morphed seating position. Speeds of 85 MPH were hit during testing, however it is difficult to control, especially with the large 700cc motor on your back and the not-so-intuitive steering, you have to turn left to go right.

Joshua Tulberg built this hybrid motorcycle when he was studying at Ventura College. His father, Carl helped him locate Motion Inc., a New Jersey-based company, to donate linear actuators used to keep the MotoLuge from tipping over.
