This gorgeous, custom bike was originally built in 1936, and yet it looks remarkably like the ultra-futuristic light cycles we're going to see in Tron: Legacy. We've got a gallery of this cyber-anachronistic bike, which has just been refurbished.

The bike also reminds me a bit of Batman's motorcycle in Dark Knight, though that bike didn't have the amazing front grille which is just so over-the-top awesome. DiY blog Knucklebuster reports:

I took these photos at the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet where the newly restored bike was unveiled. The bike belongs to Frank Westfall from Syracuse, NY. According to some info I found online, the bike was originally built by O. Ray Courtney in 1936 and is based on a 1930 K.J Henderson. The bike is powered by inline four cylinder (not a scooter as some have said) and as I'm sure you can gather by now, is a one-off custom. What I can confirm is it does run and while it looked a bit unwieldy, Frank could be seen riding the bike around the Fairgrounds all weekend.
