Isn’t it about time you purchased your very own custom-built street-legal Tron Light Cycle? The folks at Parker Brothers Custom Choppers certainly think so!
The Parker Brothers team is building 5 custom one off “Lightcycles” to the exact specs of the movie bikes. Each bike will be black with an accent color - 5 bikes with 5 different accent colors (red, blue, yellow, green, and orange). There will only be one bike made per color so if you must have a certain color, you better call now. This is a first come first serve project so don’t delay. Disney designers built a “movie prop” of this bike for the TRON Legacy promotions and not a running version so these will be the only known running versions to exist. The engineering behind a fully functional version is mindboggling to say the least.
Pick one up now for only $35G’s. Impenetrable wall of colored light sold separately.[geekologie.]
In 1962 I was born in Old Town Tokyo
I was brought up surrounded by the smell of oil and steel, and the sound of machinery
I think this is why this life suits me well
I have Images but I am not inspired by any particular thing
I don’t draw either
I cut steel or bend aluminum listening to how I feel at that moment
I use my own hands and break my back making the bikes
I believe that speaks to peoples emotions and makes them want oneMr. Legendary Shinya Kimura

Confederate Motorcycles has been through a lot in the last couple of years.
The latest machine to roll through the warehouse at Confederate is a new, darker take on the production P120 Fighter. Using a similar frame of 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum monocoque backbone, bulkhead and fuselage side plate construction along with the marque's double-wishbone front end, the new P120 Black Flag adds a healthy dose of all-black style.
Power for the Black Flag comes from the same 120-cubic-inch V-twin engine with 160 horsepower and 135 pound-feet of torque as used in the standard Fighter. Suffice it to say that's plenty of power. Pricing has yet to be set, but you can rest assured knowing it won't be cheap and that there will be a limited number of Black Flags available.
