Parker Brothers Choppers’ Jeff Halverson detailed that the ambitious 474-pound bike packs in a Suzuki TLR1000 V-twin engine, and it’s wrapped in a steel frame and finished in a fibreglass bodywork.
Halverson told Wired that the project was unique because there’s no real-life reference. The lightcycles we know from the movies are strictly virtual, so Parker Brothers Choppers had to rely on a collection of images found online to create the bike.
The unique, fully-functional bike measures in at over 8 feet long, and is 23 inches wide. For the rare few of you that get the chance to ride one, you will find yourself 28.5 inches off the ground, in a position that can only be described as horizontal.
For an extra geeky touch, an iPad can be docked into the bike to display various statistics about your ride.
The video below shows the motocycle in action. It does look somewhat difficult to maneuver–judge for yourself:
