‘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.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
