Default Any nice conversions?

I hope to set up a Biker squad, maybe some Veterans (though they're not necessary..)
If anyone can give me some inspiration, for any squad at all, much appreciated!

Flags and banners look cool on bikes but then again, so do spears and (bright) lances.

If you put banners on you bikes, or purity seals, then you should try to make them look swept back. I have such decorative bits on my Venerable Dreadnaught, Vorn. I've added the loose dangly bits in such a manner as to make it look as though he has suddenly pivoted to the left.

Tropies can look good too, perhaps not something so obscene as heads on spikes, but perhaps some tyranid chitin or Tau bonding knives? Think up a background for your bike squadron...how did they aspire to such high status? They could proudly display their battle honours.

what i did for one guy was raise his arms slightly. that way its still like hes grabbing the handles but the hands are above handels. then a placed a botler in each hand so it looks like hes rinding in head first guns blazing. for another guy i flatten the back wheel slightly and glued it one without glueing the fron one. then i can raise the front of the bike so he's doing a wheely. this can be reversed so that it looks like the Marine quickly hit the front brakes without the back ones so the bike tilts forward and the marine is flung into combat. give him two chain swords.

You can also make the bikes "chopper" style, by using brass wire (or something, I dunno about the material to use) to extend the bar that connects the front of the motorcycle to the front wheel. I think they have White Scars bikes like that in the rulebook.
