another fan-made TRON-inspired item. this time round, its the Skatecycle – not the Lightcycle – but you can consider it as miniature Lightcycle look-alike, except that you don’t ride on it but rather, you step on them. being a fan of the movie TRON, Alon Karpman, creator of the Freerider Skatecycle, created this one-off TRON Skatecycle based on his original creation.
