A Lightcycle?

Pretty cool, but this thing sure does not look stable at low speeds I would like to see it do the 8o mph they say it will do.

Nice job on it though.

It looks like a video game that’s come to life, that because it is.
The Lightcycle from Parker Brothers Choppers was inspired by the movie “Tron: Legacy,” where virtual characters race on high speed bikes that behind deadly trails of light.
The Parker Brother’s version can’t do that last part, but is otherwise a near exact replica of the CGI rides in the movie and, best of all, you can actually buy one.
Despite the unconventional seating position and hubless wheels, the Lightcycle is far from a show bike. It is powered by electricity, can travel up to 80 miles per 35 minute charge and costs about $60,000.
But what’s most amazing about it is that Parker Brothers Choppers didn’t even exist a year ago.
