Get your PayPal account ready, because the ultimate nerd accoutrement is for sale on eBay. Just in time for the release of Tron Legacy , it’s the Lightcycle ! That’s right, the fortuitously named Parker Brothers Choppers  in Melbourne, Fla., will build five working lightcycles in five different colors, with the option of a high-powered electric drivetrain. You can get yours for a mere $35,000.
Street-legal and built for everyday use, each of the collectors-edition bikes will consist of 22″ x 12″ dual hubless wheels with custom tires. A hardened steel frame supports a carbon fiber and fiberglass body. The colored LED  light trail can be turned off and on with a switch. You’ll also get a Tron-style helmet, which the makers are careful to note is not DOT-approved.
Here’s the most exciting part: If you’re among the lucky five buyers, you can opt to power your bike with an electric motor . You’ll also get a YouTube link that allows you to follow the progress as your Lightcycle is built to spec. Now that’s futuristic!
