A Real-Life Replica Of The Tron Motorcycle Is For Sale And I Want It RIGHT NOW
Oh. My. Goodness. There is a real, actual, honest-to-goodness Tron motorcycle replica for sale and the price isn’t even as ridiculous as one would think.
The Tron motorcycle is currently available over at Sotheby’s (where they more insane photos) to be auctioned on Saturday, May 2, 2015. The starting bid they’re looking for will be between $25,000 and $40,000. Not too crazy!
Here’s the description…
96 volt, direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled throttle, rebound and compression damping with spring-preload front suspension and rigid rear suspension, and front and rear hydraulic brakes.
A recreation of the Tron: Legacy motorcycle
Functional electric motorcycle
The ultimate homage for any fan
This custom electric vehicle was built especially for the Andrews Collection to recreate the unique motorcycles seen in the 2010 movie Tron: Legacy. It is a highly compelling work of mobile art that has an enduring connection to pop culture.
The bike was partially built by an outside firm and then sent to the Andrews’s own shop for completion. It is a fully functioning motorcycle that can be ridden, as it is powered by a direct-drive electric motor that has lithium batteries, which is mated to a computer-controlled digital electronic transmission. This custom Tron tribute boasts a very low seat height of 28.5 inches, making it easy to ride even at low speeds. The motorcycle is finished in black with a white stripe and boasts an imposing stance to match its performance.
After its completion by the Andrews’ in 2012, the bike has only been ridden around their facilities to ensure that it remains in functioning condition. As such, it is in as-new condition and would be an ideal piece for any collection of movie memorabilia. It is unlikely that a similar motorcycle will ever be produced or made available for purchase, making this a truly unique opportunity.
I don’t care if it’s top speed is 20 miles per hour I want it. It’d be worth it just for the reactions you’d get driving down the street on a freaking Tron: Legacy lightcycle. Not to mention, what lady out there wouldn’t want to hop on for a ride? That’s it. I’m buying it. Do you think they’ll take a check?
