Above: The replica Tron Light Bike which will be auctioned next month
When it was released in 2010, TRON: Legacy may have disappointed a few fans who remembered the 1980s cult Tron movie. But the one thing that really did capture peoples’ imaginations was the redesigned light cycle which has since spawned a whole host of working replicas.
Now there’s another replica available for fans to bid on. Although it doesn’t leave trails of light in its wake as in the movie (see below), the bike’s seat does stand at just 28.5 inches from the ground and contains a 96 Volt direct-drive electric motor, lithium batteries, and a computer-controlled throttle. The Andrews family who are auctioning the bike claims it has only been ridden around their museum a handful of times, making it virtually good as new.
They will be auctioning off a large portion of their collection at Sotheby’s, Fort Worth Texas on May 2, where the Tron: Legacy bike is expected to sell for $25,000 – $40,000.
