‘Tron’ Light Cycle Sells At Auction for $77,000
Published May 12, 2015
When RM Sotheby’s offered up the all-electric ‘Tron’ Lightcycle at auction, it was expected to fetch somewhere around $25,000 to $40,000. That was it’s appraised value after all.
Paul and Chris Andrews, a father and son team of collectors, decided to offer up their full-scale replica lightcycle at auction. Father and son were quite shocked I’m sure when the unique cycle pulled an astounding $77,000 purchase price!
According to the auction listing, Tron’s ride is in like new condition, and is equipped with “96-volt, direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled throttle, rebound and compression damping with spring-preload front suspension and rigid rear suspension, and front and rear hydraulic brakes.”
It’s touted to be fully operational and even street legal!
I’m not sure it’s the wisest way to spend $77,000 but your riding buddies will never ever show up with the same bike.
