Welcome to Librarium Online!
Dur, I'd like to do this but I have no clue whats-so-ever how to do such a converison:wacko: . So I ASK!!!! Please post your ideas and pictures, or helpful links. Thanks everyone:w00t: .
Lictor, hi mate.
generally the start point is the existing jet bike model, although the more exhuberant may go whizing round GW mail order for the old harlequin jet bike rider
at the basic level, model robes from green stuff
other features include
the use of wood eld glade rider bits
the use of standard guardian torsos
the use of banshee arms
Personnaly I like sticking the wings off the Epic Titan on the back (one in my gallery)
Everything you have been told is a lie!

I found this model and I am in love with it. The guys levitating. I think I am going to model him and count him as a on jet bike. I am sure people will balk at it, but oh well.
you could always go the route of getting a regular jetbike, putting on a farseer head, maybe a farseer arm with spear as well as modelling some small robes, shouldn't be too difficult...
If you are intending to collect Eldar, and are not just doing a one off for enjoyment only, then I reckon you should consider combining the basic jetbike with the new Dire Avengers sprue, most especially the spear/lance exarch arm, and possibly the egyptian style Exarch head, or even use the one without a helmet and have a bare headed Farseer (is that allowed?), then greenstuff for the robes etc. Would probably be fun to get the robes looking swept back as if he is moving at high speed. Hope that helps.
My only problem at attempting to do this, is wasting a model. Cutting off a farseer head or whatnot and messing up, is going be a downer. Cape and stuff, no problem, its the head that makes it or breaks it.
Just found this (warlock on a jetbike), maybe have a look for inspiration here (removed link)
Just PM me if you want the address, as it is in another forum.
That'll teach me to be a noob!:rolleyes:

If you don't like wasting a model, the best way to do it would be to use plastic spares (as I mentioned above somewhere with the new dire avenger sprue). If you are likely to get one of these anyway, you may as well use the bare headed one and the spear or something.
Anyway, having had a look at the jetbike sprue, I would say keep the main body of the vehicle and the legs of the rider, use a more interesting torso (possibly dire avengers exarch version, anyone see a theme here?), keep one of the biker arms and then your choice of head and weapon arm. Then just position robes to cover the lack of ornamentation on the legs and biker arm, and possibly craft a little embossed rune on the front (or is that just too much work and me being silly).
Incidentally, I like to keep to plastic as much as possible for any conversion (eg Marine biker Librarian.)

Should make jetbike conversions a little less "hack n' slash", and the spear is held in the perfect downwards-pointing position for a jetbike
