There’s a lot to love about Tron, but for me it all pales in comparison to the lightcycles. These ones on eBay? Not props. They’re working, street-legal models you can actually buy. But you’ll want to hurry.
The limited edition of five lightcycles… each made to movie spec, but with actual working parts… comes from the same outfit that brought you the $100,000 Batpod from The Dark Knight. These babies will put a hurt on your savings, too, but at $35,000 they’re almost tempting enough to consider. Especially since they’re a limited edition…
The Parker Brothers team is building 5 custom one off “Lightcycles” to the exact specs of the movie bikes. Each bike will be black with an accent color – 5 bikes with 5 different accent colors (red, blue, yellow, green, and orange). There will only be one bike made per color so if you must have a certain color, you better call now… Now, about the bikes themselves, the wheels are custom made 22″ x12″ dual hubless wheels with custom made tires (Hoosier is custom making 5 sets just for us specifically for this project). (Buyers will have the option of additional tires as needed) The frame is 2″ cold rolled and boxed hardened steel with carbon fiber/fiberglass bodies. Accent colors are neon glowing from behind frosted plexiglass and can be turned off or on with the flip of a switch.
Oh, and did I mention that each bike comes with a Tron helmet? And that you’ll be able to watch yours be built on YouTube?
This. This is what I want for my next ten birthdays and Christmases combined.
