Marc Parker and his brother, Shannon, gained recognition for their skills in customization and fabrication when they built the Tron light bike in real life. Marc decided to build the bike to show executives from the movie that it could indeed be built after hearing their reasoning behind using CGI in the movie versus real motorbikes. Pretty soon after, SyFy Channel approached Marc and Shannon about doing a TV show about their custom builds. At this point, they didn't have a legitimate business; they were building bikes for fun and as a hobby. The network told them to get a shop and make it legit. So they did. Today, the Parker Brothers are building custom bikes and automobiles for clients worldwide in their 20,000+ sq ft shop and are in talks of signing to do a show with a bigger TV network.
