The Tron Lightcycle – Build Videos!
Well the Parker Bros are actually doing it, you might remember a couple of months ago the internet lit up like BP oil rig with images and rumours circulating that some people, some utterly mad people, had decided to build and sell real Tron Lightcycles. After being inundated with press queries The Parker Bros decided to document the build process on YouTube, both to keep fans updated and to silence vapourware-naysayers. The finished product will be 100% road legal (in the US at least) and will be offered with both electric and gasoline drivetrains.
For those who still doubt this will get built, this is the same team of guys that built a fully functioning BatPod bike last year, just for shits and giggles. A new tv series called “Dream Machines Inc” is being filmed on location in The Parker Brothers garage so here’s hoping they get some more footage of the Tron Lightcycle as it’s built.
I’ve collected all the current videos and added them below in roughly chronological order (start at the top and work your way down). Many of the clips are overlayed with death metal so if you’re in an office, turn your sound down or off to avoid scaring the shit out of Sharmayne in accounting.
