In 1982, Disney’s Tron showed you a side of computers and video games that you had never seen before: the inside.
Along with the 2010 sequel, Tron has turned into a well-known sci-fi franchise praised for its special effects by multiple generations. But what if it could be even a little more real?
A real-life Lightcycle – straight from the awesomely captivating designs by Syd Mead and Daniel Simon – was on sale at a Sotheby’s auction recently. It’s going price? $77,000.
The impressive-looking bike is fully-functional and in practically new condition. Built for the Andrews Collection, the bike is one of a kind, and according to solidsmack.com, the Lightcycle features “a 96-volt, direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled throttle. Additionally, the electric motorcycle features a spring-preloaded front suspension, rigid rear suspension, and front and rear hydraulic brakes.”
Is the custom-made movie memorabilia worth the price?
