A Life Size Tron Light Cycle Replica Is Being Auctioned Off!
A life-size, fully-functioning, replica of the light cycle from the 2010 movie, TRON: Legacy, is being auctioned off.
The replica was reportedly developed by a few different companies before being finished by the Andrew’s Collection in 2011/2012.
The bike is powered by a 96 V direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries. Other features included are a computer-controlled throttle, rebound and compression damping with spring-preload front suspension and rigid rear suspension along with front and rear hydraulic brakes.
It has only been ridden a few times around the Andrew’s Collection office, just to make sure that it remains functional and is now being auctioned off in “as new” condition by RM Sotheby’s.
The reasons for the auction? Downsizing says artist and businessman Chris Andrews:
"We want to get down to a smaller number of cars – perhaps 15 to 20 – that we very much enjoy driving and that we can use on events with the family. There are a number of events we’d still like to try overseas and here in the United States, and in order to do that, we need to focus on a more manageable collection."
The auction will take place in Texas on May 2nd, 2015 with the starting price set at between US $25,000 to $40,000.
TRON: Legacy, the sequel to the 1982 film TRON, starred Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. A third film is in production, no release date has been set.
