Parker Brothers Choppers Rides Real TRON Light Cycle

by


The first time I caught wind of the real TRON light cycles was back in June when they were on eBay for $35,000. I wanted one so bad but sadly, my lottery ticket didn’t win. If you have the loot to buy one, apparently a few of them are still available and rather than just offering up pics for you to lust after, Parker Brothers Choppers is giving us a video of one geek riding it to get worked up over.

If you watch the video though, the music will piss you off. I really wanted to hear the thing, but the background music is too loud. With a V-Twin in the bike from a Suzuki TLR-1000 what I can hear of the bike, it doesn’t sound high tech enough for a light cycle. This thing needed a screaming, high-tech rice rocket motor.

It looks so epic, but it looks dangerous to ride. The bike is supposed to be street legal, but it appears to have very little steering and it looks like it would lever over if you lean at all. The bike weighs 474 pounds and is a bit over 100 inches long and 23-inches wide. There are four of the ten bikes built left and they are going for $55,000 each now.

    It’s much easier to sell a vehicle, if we can see it in action. This clip’s only 2:12, and they burn almost a full minute without showing it in motion – either by just standing next to the bike, or posing on the bike.

    In short, this could be cool, but the video convinces me that the builders are too afraid to ride it – likely because it doesn’t handle & is very heavy; plus, we never see the bike go over 5MPH…

    Sick bike, yet it should have had a turboed GSXR motor or something that sounds more futuristic not a fucking loafing v twin chopper motor. And yes it definitely looks dangerous to ride.

    It looks great in many respects but lack of functionality kills it for me. There seems to be a total lack of front suspension and back suspension just making it very unstable. I know they wanted to make it true to form of the movie’s lightcycle, but the front wheel is at least 4 inches too wide to properly handle or no serious clearance was given to clearance.

    If they could take care of these issues along with exposing some of the engine, adding high intensity LED lights uniformly into the areas painted white, and making the body a bit more curvaceous, those cycles would be selling like hotcakes…
