The fully functional custom electric motorcycle was built especially for the Andrews Collection and will be auctioned along with more than 75 vehicles from one of America’s biggest car collections. Partially built by an outside firm, the bike has been completed in Andrews’s own shop. The motorcycle is finished in white and black stripe and features a very low seat height of 28.5 inches which makes it easy to ride even at low speeds. After its completion in 2012, the Tron Light Cycle replica has only been ridden around the Andrews facility in order to keep it in a working condition.
