Default giving a biker two close combat weaopns

I just bought a squad of bikers. So far I have one nob with a power klaw and 1 boy with a close combat weapon. The third boy i have an extra close combat arm for. Do you think that it would be okay if i gave him a close combat weapon in both arms? It would be as if he didnt have a pistol, but instead another close combat weapon, still confering the +1 attack bonus, he just cant shoot with it.

It's perfectly fine, and you don't have to limit yourself ruleswise. The individual Boyz within your Biker mob are not going to be upgraded differently no matter what you do to the list, only the Nob is really important when it comes to WYSIWYG. Model your Boy however you like, he'll have the equipment shown in his codex no matter what you do to him.

If he's holding two CC weapons, how is he steering?
That's the only objection I'd raise; as with the grots you can give them what you like - they'll still be normal warbikers!

The Orks actually let go of the steering bar once they ploy into the mass of bodies :P

I say go crazy, and if anyone gives you a hard time about not having a gun to shoot etc.. just say the 2nd knife / sword / axe plays as the gun because the actually throws it like a boomerang. Its just a really scary spikey one...

"I can ride my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars, no handlebars..." (hopefully I got the lyrics right :P)
