Default Attack bike bases?

I've been buying attack bikes on ebay and stripping and repainting them for a week or so now, and a thought occured to me, do they need to be on a base and if so what one? I know the normal marine bike uses a rectangular base but what about the attack bikes with there side car?

GW always do this. They always go on about bases, but alot of their models don't come with one!

Try glueing a pair of rectangle bike bases together.

More a case that alot of the older vehicle kits didn't have one. Your suppose to use the area the edges of the vehicle as the edges of the base so to speak. That's true for most vehicles save walkers. I'm sure you noticed that the bikes can stand ont hier own without a base. This is becasue they really aren't ment to have a base other than thier normal edges. the base in this case just makes it easier for posing it in a dynamic fashion.
