Hello!

The Purple Rain Cafe an 80’s Retro Cafe will be hosting the Tron Light Cycle.

Normally this vehicle would be roped off during display. How much would you pay to sit on it and have your photo taken?

We are located in Rockledge Fl.

Depending on response I may rent the cycle to display out front of our location.

The rental is brutal and I am looking to offset the costs.

Jan 20th

Thank you for your feed back!
Why is there always enough time to go back and fix it right a second time??

At just $5 for a photo op you'd probably have quite a few people pay up and maybe some of those peeps could justify $10, however anything more than that and I doubt very many would bother.  If I were in the area I'd be willing to drop $10 on the photo-op without a second thought, but I'm a Tron fanatic so ;)...

Is your arcade open now?
I can't find any info on google for it?
Or is the 20th a grand opening?

It was made here in Melbourne. They did such a good job Disney attempted to sue them. From what I understand because Disney said the bike was completely fictional and it possible to manufacture they won their case in court.

devils' advocate: if their advertising it as the Tron light cycle and charging fees
                         for something, they'll lose their next court case. :)

like to see a picture. I would only pay to ride it and be able to pull a stoppie on it.

I would retain all rights to that video. :P

No sign or units that look like they are being worked on. Went to both Plazas. One has That little restaurant and the other Fun Town. :( I want to get the first to review on yelp. Haha

Can't say i'd pay to take my picture with a motorcycle made to look like a light cycle that has nothing to actually do with tron.
