When Parker Brothers Choppers first constructed a real-life version of the Tron Light Cycle, it was powered by a 1,000cc V-twin out of a Suzuki TL. While they had the futuristic look nailed, the din from the dino juice burner was so very 20th century. Luckily they came to their senses and tried again with an electric drivetrain and built a more authentic-sounding, smoother-riding machine.
One lucky hardcore Tron fan will soon hit the road on a zero-emissions Light Cycle. How? Through Parker Brothers Choppers, which just unveiled a working electric version that will be given away by the end of 2011.
