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.
