Subscribe To Nerdtastic: Buy A Street Legal Tron Light Cycle Updates
I've already subscribed
I've only ever ridden a motorcycle one time in my life and I've never driven one, but I would learn real damn quick if I had $35,000 to drop on a custom, life-size Light Cycle from Disney's upcoming Tron sequel. These actually exist thanks to Parker Brother's Choppers out of Florida, who recently also put together a full-size replica of the Batpod from The Dark Knight.
They're stepping up their game by creating five custom replicas of the already famous Tron: Legacy Light Cycles built to order, and get this, they'll be fully street legal. The bikes are being produced in five colors, one each of red, blue, green, orange and yellow. They're all built to order so you'll have to put down a healthy deposit before they start soldering parts together.
To order yours, head over to Ebay and be quick about it. Nerds have a lot of disposable income. You save a lot of money on rent when you live in your Mom's basement.
Seriously though, is there anything more badass than the possibility of rolling through downtown at night on your custom fucking Light Cycle? I'm going to dream about this tonight. Here's a video from last years Comic Con where the bike was revealed in person, to provide dream material.
Here's the full announcement from the geek-friendly geniuses at Parker Brothers Choppers:
The new Tron Legacy movie will hit theaters in December of this year and the lightcycle sequence will be the hit of the movie. To celebrate this historic event, 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. This is a first come first serve project so don't delay. Disney designers built a "movie prop" of this bike for the TRON Legacy promotions and not a running version so these will be the only known running versions to exist. The engineering behind a fully functional version is mindboggling to say the least.
