You folks familiar with this bike?


According to Roadracing World, it's now making 160 rear-wheel hp and 104 ft-lbs of torque!.

Thanks for the link, a lot more detail there then any of the magazines have given on this bike, kinda reminds me of the Britten.

Sadly, I think that Tul-Aris was recently wrecked by one of the magazines, while they were testing. I may be wrong, and you might be able to get some info on the web, but I vaguely remember being disgusted, and turning the page without reading the article.

(I hope my memory is off and I am wrong.)

Yep, it was wrecked, by a Roadracing World rider/writer. I haven't yet seen the article so I don't know how it happened or the extent of the damage.

He also built the Tul-Da. A supesingle built around a Honda 500. This thing could run with 250 GP bikes. Was freakn cool as hell.
If you want one of the Rocket Science shirts he is now selling them to raise money for the project. I believe you should contact Manley Cycle about purchase of the shirts....

My favorite quote from the project came very early on: When asking the CRA (Central Road Racing Association, the local club racing body) what class the Tul-Aris would run they told him he could run it in Heavy Weight (750 cc) because "ain't nuttn gonna beat a GSXR 750 any ways"

He's an interesting guy, Rob Tuluie. Apparently quite the character. Would love to meet him someday and have enjoyed following along as the bike's progressed over the last few years.

Oh, and it's still alive & kicking. That Roadracing World blurb is dated 2/17/03.

A couple of fun older Tuluie links...
