I was entertaining the thought of starting Orks as a second army even before I started reading about the new goodies they are getting. That being said I still don't understand much about them.
My question is pretty simple, under the new Codex will Ork Boyz (The ones that come in boxes of 16) and the old Warbike models still be viable.
I assume the Boyz are, as they are sort of the bread and butter troops, yes?
But I remember reading that the bikes were becoming pretty awesome in the new 'Dex and that might entail obsoleting the old 3rd Ed. warbikes model completely.
Answers appreciated, any further light you can shine as far as what models are becoming obsolete would be greatly appreciated as I go bargain hunting.
But are there changed to the warbikes (in the codex) that obselete the old model?
I mean, the 3rd Edition predator is exactly the same as the 4th ed. except for appearance, so that doesn't matter, but I don't know if that's the case for the bikes.
I don't care about having older models as long as they still fit the codex.
Yes, you will still be able to use your older warbike models with the new codex. Any changes made to the bike entry between the two editions will not make the older bikes unusable. (Now if we were talking about warbuggies and wartrakks, then that would be a different story as there is now a distinction between the two in the new codex.)

Wartrakks are now an upgrade for Warbuggies and allow you to re-roll dangeroues terrain tests for the vehicle.
Also, as darkreaver said, you can still use the old 3rd Edition Biker models with the new Dex. The bikes have changed in the Codex, but their weapons are essentially the same as the old Dex, but with a new name.

Boys boxes will go from 16 boys without heavy weapons and power klaw, to 10 boys with rokkit/big shoota, and nob with klaw option. Its a push or shove depending what you want. You can easily convert big shootas/rokkits pending what your looking for. The nob with the klaw there are lots of ways to represent him. Considering the number of boys you'll need, it might not hurt to have a old box or 2.
War buggies/trakks are a change which now affects what you want.
The biggest change is looted vehicles which you really need to read the codex to see what to do.
