Ok then quick recap:

Hotwheels trikes and bikes, used by myself, pappa midnight and a few others.

Doug at Em4 miniatures carries the old grenadier p;oice bike, sports road bike and scrambler.

Eureka Miniatures have scramblers and quads with their moderns range.

I think TAG do a quad too.

Westwind Roadkill have a complete biker gang and various characters with bikes.

Curtis at Ramshackle Games has a range of component resin bikes with or without riders.

Bicycles is going to be a lot harder but foundry do one in their WWII range I think.

Jo over at Black Cat Bases does a BMX bike with a hoody ghoul rider, (which is completely separate) so that might be your best bet:



Hope this helps and welcome.

No, unpainted. The shots are just examples from the Dixon website.

Their pennyfarthing is really good, but not realy what Iīm looking for... I want a plain, modern bicycle without a rider.

That's what the one I linked to is: for some reason, there is no photo.

You might also try architectural model suppliers.  4D Model Shop in London used to (and probably still does) sell some 1/50 styrene bicycles - but they are a little flat.

About half way down the page.

Wow! Too bad they donīt have a picture. But the scale is right, so maybe Iīll order a pack. Thanks!

Try Rattlehead Games under the product line for Road Kill. They have several types of bikers mounted and unmounted.

I think he meant finding them in general.  There are not many options out there for bicycles.

I see, thought he meant he'd had problems with an order.

West Wind does bikes, too.
All I can find att West Wind is a bicycle in a pack of civilinas, but itīs got a rider on it... But thanks anyway. Any other suggestions?
Yes, there are the civilians with the one fellow on the bike - which is very nice - but joras may have also been referring to the many MOTORbikes that West Wind does in their Road Kill line...

http://www.westwindproductions.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=106_107

I have one of the sisterhood bike gang packs - pretty cool, but on the biggish side of 28mm!

Devil Dog Design also did modern US military recon/scout types on motorbikes and ATVs

http://pacificskygames.com/default.aspx?man=44

I'd love to see modern minis on road and mountain bicycles too... but then... I'm a bit of a bike nut... I don't think there's enough others out there that would make it financially viable for any manufacturers to bother.
