Must See: Fully Functional ‘Tron’ Light Cycle Is Here!
space
The Movie God   |  @   |  

You knew it was only a matter of time before someone did it, and here we are.

Parker Brothers Choppers of Melbourne, Florida have constructed a fully functional light cycle, straight out of the Tron universe.

These masters of wild and outrageous vehicular creations are building a reputation for bringing to life the crafts we only ever see in movies. Among the things that they’ve produced, you’ll find a Batpod from The Dark Knight, an awesome reproduction of Ghost Rider’s wheels, and of course, this light cycle.

The bike looks insane, and this whole team did a great job taking such an iconic cinematic vehicle and making it a reality. The only unfortunate thing is that while this bad boy does work and you can drive it, no, it doesn’t quite make razor-sharp turns at absurd speeds. That would be an easy way to get someone killed, and no one needs that. That said, it is built to hit upwards of 150 mph, if you just so happen to be a superhero and high-speed pavement does you no harm.

Head on over to the other side to check out the videos of Parker Brothers Choppers’ own light cycle in action.

Below you’ll see three videos. The first two show off construction and the bike in action, driving back and forth on the street. The thrid video shows off the impressive finished product being presented at Biketoberfest 2010 this past weekend. You can also head to their official website to check out another video showing off some of their other work.

Be warned, the last video may be just a tad NSFW. Nothing R-rated, but there is a bike festival involved here, and motorcycle models are not always big fans of clothing. Better safe than sorry and so on.
