That's a fine buggy conversion you've got there. ;Y
You can also use old trukks as well, although unless you already have the parts, that probably isn't going to be any cheaper to make.
I'm about to make some deffkoptas out of bikes. I plan to use some fantasy flying bases, the edges of leftover plastic sprues for the bars holding the propellers, and random strips of plastic for the propeller blades. You just assemble the bike as normal, only without any of the wheels, and add the extra bits. I haven't done them yet, but I'll post how it goes.
Do you have any leftover vehicle hooks? If you have any vehicles, I'm sure you do. Take two of the small hooks, attach them to a random plastic bit that's about the size of an ork's arm, face them towards each other as if they were two halves of a claw, and you have a powerklaw. Axe heads work too, but I like the look of the vehicle hooks better. It looks more genuine.
Some good ideas, look forward to pics of the deffcoptas! Seems like the new bikes are a good starting point for several conversions. The boarding planks on the new trukk sprue make a good starting point for several conversions too, there were plans to make buggies from them with some spare wheels. I will ask the guy how those are progressing and see if I can't get some pics up.
Well I took some normal boyz and cut the space marine jumpack in half and stuck it on the boyz to make storm boyz. I'm sure other people made the same conversion. Its a nice cheep way to make storm boyz.

I am currently working on 9 Killa kans, 2 Dreads, and 8 warbuggies completely made out of plasticard. I currently have 2 killa kans at 80% completion, and another at 30% completion. When I am done, I plan on posting pictures for everyone to see. But for orks, plasticard really is your friend! So much easy effective things can be done with it!
I almost forgot to mention, I'm also making killa kans out of barrels. A friend of mine suggested it. In the older sets, you'd get a few barrels with the scenery, and you also usually get one with each vehicle. Just make some arms and legs out of sprue edges, or random bits, and then slap on some weapons and orky bits. Instant killa kan! ^_^
I´m using the new bikes with the new trukk kit. 3 bikes + 1 trukk makes 3 trikes.. one axle with trukk wheels for each trike, chop up the rear trukk bed as a gunner platform floor.
Still on the idea stage though, but nicer and cheaper than the standard buggies(which I hate the look of).
I have a thread about this in the modelling subforum entitled something with ork buggy/trikes
Currently painting and playing Waaaaagh Bigtoof 40k and Aeronautica Imperialis.
Asking for suggestions without knowing what you're planning on doing is like asking a blind man what color shirt matches your eyes.
After looking at the bits, I've found that the barrels that come with vehicles are no good for killa kans. They're way too small. Luckily, I have plenty of barrels from the old ork battlebox, so I'll use those.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to find a velociraptor avatar.
