Unique cars and memorabilia from the Andrews Collection will be crossing the block on May 2 in Fort Worth, Texas, and among the rare wares is a 2011 custom electric motorcycle unlike any seen on the street. In fact, it’s much more likely that you’ve seen this bike on the silver screen.
Set for sale without reserve, this custom motorcycle is a recreation of the one seen in the movie “Tron: Legacy,” and even more impressive than its design are the inner-workings. Lithium batteries are connected to a direct-drive electric motor and a computer-controlled electronic transmission, meaning that yes, this motorcycle works.
As RM Sotheby’s Auctions’ website describes, this “ultimate homage for any fan” is in as-new condition, and has barely been used since its completion in 2012. The Andrews Collection comes from Paul Andrews and his son Chris, who have been building their collection together for decades. This motorcycle was first constructed by an outside firm, and sent to the Andrews’ shop for completion.
Finished in a stunning black color with white stripes and the imposing stance only a movie-motorcycle can embody, this one-of-a-kind collectors item will more than likely incite a bit of a bidding war. It’s estimated that the final bid will be between $25,000 and $40,000, but if you’re attending and placing a bid, we’d suggest being prepared to go a little higher.
