    That's some really awesome bike conversions.. Nice work.

    But I agree with the people who complained about the Hollywood shooting marine.. It'd be obscenely dangerous doing that with explosive ammunition.

    Still, it looks cool, I guess.

    Thanks for the comments.

    So I'll probably end up having Attack bikes in this army.
    Anyone have any suggestions on how to make them look a little cooler?

    Well wolf raider has a cool attack bike conversion on his site, but it would need some further alteration I think to fit your army style.

    If you watch American Choppers, they made a bike with a side car, you could to something like that.

    Now that's pretty neat stuff you got there. Thanks for the link to Exile Bikes, BTW, as I got even more reference from them.

    Mind if I "borrow" the looks of "El"? It fits the bill on a conversion I wanted to do for a while - but had no idea on customizing the bike right, to more agile and not so heavy while still retaining a mass to it.

    Go ahead. Check out some of the fat bloke bikes on the exile site. I think that might be what you're looking for. It looks agile yet still beefy. It doesn't look like a really pretty thing that will be totally ruined if it gets into a minor accident - not that you'd want to get into a minor accident.

    Yeah, I saw that bike.

    It's a nice job, but there's still something I'm not sure about.
    (Dude, OCC is selling fragrences. Talk about marketing...)

    I've always had a bit of a lack of respect for sidecars. I always think "That's where Robin sits while Batman drives."
    Except they had the Batmobile. Didn't they have a motorcycle with a sidecar at one point?
    In any case, I always get the superhero/sidekick feeling.
    So that's why I'm trying to think of something different from the sidecar currently on attack bikes.
    Good suggestion though.

    So I'm considering a conversion maybe a bit like wolf raider's except with a car feel to it.
    Only thing I'm afraid of is people calling it a vehicle and not bike. In the rules bikes aren't supposed to be seen as vehicles but rather extentions of the body or something like that.

    Maybe a big ATV?
