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.

$55GRAND???? Seriously? Does it even having a turning radius? Bet it would be hot laying across the top of that black body on top of the engine and talk about back pain..... I’d rather have two Harley’s and some new leathers for that price.

Too big. Too ugly. Too uncomfortable. Total waste of time and money. How you supost to see anything when your lieing down like that. Front tire is like 2 ft wide, have fun steering that thing. And the positions of the handgrips and foot pegs. Try ridding that on the freeway,

each bike weighs 474 pounds, is about 100 inches long and 23 inches wide. What’s great is that the creators say the Light Cycle lookalike handles just like an actual sportsbike.

The custom-built and street-legal replicas of the Tron Light Cycle are built on steel frames, fiberglass bodies and a V-twin Suzuki TLR1000 engine. Braking power comes from a custom friction drum built into the hub-less design.
