Fully-Functional TRON Lightcycle Sold For $77,000

If you’ve always had your heart set on a TRON Lightcycle — a working one, not a matchbox toy — you’d better start saving. The going rate (as much as there is a going rate for one-off movie-replica collectibles) is $77,000.

The bike was sold at auction by RM Sotheby’s, as part of a wider auction of the Andrews Collection, to an undisclosed (but damn lucky) bidder. It wasn’t even close to the most valuable lot, either — a 1962 Ferrari 400 went for $7,645,000.


This TRON Motorbike Is Totally Functional, And Yes, You Can Buy It

TRON: Legacy was maybe not the best film ever, but ever since it’s 2010 release, it’s spawned an entire genre of TRON-esque design — i.e. dark, glossy objects with light-up highlights. And nothing is more synonymous with TRONIism than the electric motorcycle from the film — which you can now have a chance to own.

The replica was built for the Andrews Collection, one of America’s biggest and best car collections, most of which is currently being sold at auction. That includes the TRON bike, an exact, working replica of the one seen in the film. It’s got a 96 volt direct-drive electric motor, actual suspension, and hydraulic brakes.


The bike was only ever ridden around the storage at the Andrews collection, so it’s in as-new condition. List price from Sotheby’s, which is conducting the auction, is $25,000 - $40,000; but there’s no reserve, so you might be able to snag yourself a bargain. Maybe rich people don’t like replica film props. [Sotheby’s]
