Lightcycling
August 22, 2011

Check this street-legal Tron Legacy lightcycle. Only $55,000. No need to check with your wife - she'll understand.

"This is the illuminated, street-legal motorcycle inspired by the computer animated cycle from the 2010 film Tron: Legacy. Designed for casual cruising and slow ride-bys at shows, it is made from a steel frame covered by a fiberglass cowling that replicates the sleek look of its computer-generated imagery counterpart. Electroluminescent strips built into the tire cowlings, wheel rims, and body illuminate the cycle."

There's a video of the bike in action. Almost no point riding that thing during daylight hours - it looks chunky, uncomfortable, and fairly ridiculous. The Little Woman won't be laughing as you roll out of the garage at night, however, when the electric blue stripes and glossy sleekness are in full effect, the Daft Punk is thumping, and you can't roll ten feet without bumping into a leather-clad Olivia Wilde.

On a related note: Duct Tron!
