Custom-built Tron Light Cycle on sale for $55,000

Tron: Legacy is scheduled to hit theaters on December 17 and indulge us for thinking that it would be ridiculously awesome to show up at your local Loews or AMC riding a custom-built, street-legal Tron Light Cycle.

The custom make bikes are the work of Parker Brothers Choppers from Florida and will be limited to only 10 separate units. Each of the bikes will be made with a steel frame, a fiberglass bodywork, and a Suzuki TLR1000-powered V-twin engine. A custom-made friction drum serves as the bike’s brakes and keeps the Light Cycle’s design closely resembling the virtual version seen in the actual movie. There are also speed gauges on the front with an iPad dock that allows customers to view the bike’s statistical figures on the iPad’s screen.

Jeff Halverson of Parker Brothers Choppers measures the bike at 100 inches long, 23 inches wide, and around 474 lbs. He also mentioned that the bike closely resembles that of a sportbike. We don’t know how close to the truth that is but if we had $55,000 – that’s how much it costs – to spare, we wouldn’t mind finding it out for ourselves.

Unfortunately, six of the ten bikes have already been sold with only four Light Cycles available. Better decide if you want to buy the Light Cycle because the movie is about two weeks away from opening.

Better live near the Bonneville saltflats because whatever direction it's pointed when you unload it is the only direction it can go.


Oh yeah, REPOST!

And I thought the stretch to the bars on the FZR 1000 was a reach...!


It is definitely nice looking, in some respects, but that has GOT to be unconfortable. I like the foot controls, but is there really a "Stop" to prevent the feet from slipping off? Or is it riders muscle, keeping it in place the whole time? I see lots of soreness issues that could have been midly incorporated, without detracting much at all from the bike.

vid didn't show anything lit up... major dissappointment (E.L. wire would be awesome for this application.)

Guess they only had room for the actual motor... "motor" in the movie was some kind of ... um... hypermagnet or something. But that's the feature that makes the bike!

Twenty years from now it may go up in value if it's been garaged and has under, say, five miles - and still runs. Just an expensive collector's item, a novelty and basically useless.

If someone would make a crazy Russian biker in traffic on a Tron light cycle, why that would be the uber-repost of all time.
