A Melbourne, Florida-based outfit called Parker Brothers Choppers, has released a video of a full-scale electric Tron lightcycle replica in action. They are claiming a top speed of 100 MPH and a range of 100 miles without recharging.

Previously, they built a gasoline-powered version that you can still actually buy, but the electric motor sounds much more authentic. The same company also built a replica of the Batpod.

Now we just need to convince them to show up at the next Maker Faire!
