Parker Brothers Choppers makes Tron Light Cycle
by Mark R
I’m sure that we all know that this Tron Legacy film is probably going to be a hit amongst geek sectors (unless it utterly sucks).
Of course, what really has kept the Tron legacy alive for over 30 years is that super-cool looking light cycles. If you have ever wanted one of these in real life, you will be able to get your chance as Parker Brothers Choppers has made some street-legal ones.
Granted, it doesn’t have the ability to make a wall in its wake, but it does have a steel frame, fiberglass bodywork, and a V-twin engine from a Suzuki TLR1000. The bike weighs 474 pounds and is 100 inches long and 23 inches wide. The driver itself sits about 28.5 inches above the ground, and can hopefully zip around as easy as the world of Tron.
I’ve got to admit that I have never heard of Parker Brothers, unless it was related to games. I’m surprised that the Orange County Choppers guys didn’t get involved in this. Then again, it probably would have been one of those episodes where they just argue all the time. Then again, that is every episode, isn’t it?
Orange County Choppers and Tron. Wow. That would be like teaming OCC with John and Kate plus 8. Oh wait, they actually did that.
