Well you could use them in place of rough riders if you wanted. I have seen this done for a Tanith army. He mounted them on old archive SM bikes(which aren't as big as the current ones) and left off the handlebars, modeled some new ones from wire.

You can get cadian bikers from the GW online store, its a conversion kit and looks awesome but they are something like 50 each(thats 1 biker).

The old bikes I think are still availabe through special order. They have been archived so if you can get them that would be the only way outside of Ebay.

+++The thing is, you pay that for the one biker (I think it's nearer about 30, but still a ripoff), but then because it's a conversion kit you end up with loads of parts you don't really need. Great for expanding the ol' bitz box, also great for lightening your wallet . Obviously there are much cheaper ways to do it as people have already discussed+++
