I'm starting a bike heavy army, and being a cheapass, I am trying to get the most for my money by buying as much nice stuff for as cheap as possible. But first I need some questions answered.
What does the space marine bike sprue look like? It would be really helpful if some one could provide me with a picture of it, but if not, all I really need to know is if the rider is on a seperate frame than the bike itself, as I am thinking about gettingt scout bikes for all the nice bitz, and squadrons for just the meltaguns, as both of those squads are the same as 3 reg bikers. But if the rider is a seperate section, then it would not be included, most likely, in the scout bike box. Will a regular pair of sm legs fit on it? Also, what size is the base? Metric or inches is fine.
so yea, easy to read format:
Pic of sprue
Is rider seperated from bike?
does scout bike box come with regular sm riders?
Reg SM legs fit?
What are the dimensions of the base?
Oh, and I just read that the attack bike came with a redone biker rider for the main bike, is this true, and if it is, do the other bikes w/o attack bike sprue have this too?
Can't answer your questions directly, but I can help you find stuff.
The Games Workshop website has pics of almost all the components for their models. For example:
SM Scout Biker
And of course when I go to look for specific sprues for the bikes and not the bodies I don't find them.
That's only problem with the GW website, they're occasionally missing sprues in the parts list on the website.
To find this stuff yourself just go to the appropriate section (i.e. space marines), click on a model and then next to the price is a red icon that when you hover over it says "View Components".
I also go to my local hobby shop. They have this enormous book that lists all the GW models and their components.
Hope that helps!

...Sorry, but that really wasn't much help. The only reason I'm asking what the sprue looks like is because their store doesnt have it... They for some reason don't have many of the impeial vehicle sprues, such as the land speeder and dreadnought sprues, and I believe every races bike sprue is not there either....
this is rather ironic.... a cheapass buying a bike army! lol! well it is, considering bike armies are one of the most expensive smurf armies out there.

I can tell you that the scout bike box comes with a space marine rider attached to the bike sprue and a seperate scout rider.

Thank you, that is very helpfull. Now I can get those scout biker boxes for my reg marines can cop the saddle bags and holsters for my regular bikes, and maybe even use some free scout ccw/bp arms i got to make those into foot scouts. or if i use some scout bikers, i'll buy two boxes and make the 6th one a regular biker...
