Prince August also has a few bikes in their future shock range:

the figures are actually really neat. the paintjob sort of kills their look...





I have the second model and I must say that the bike looks nice, but it's really quite small (so it looks like a small bike, not too small but definately not impressive).

As Commander Vyper said, Hotwheels bikes are pretty good for 28mm minis:


If you've got any problems locating them I might have some about somewhere.

Just won an auction on ebay for this nice bike, problem is the auction was for 8 of them and they are all excactly the same. Maybe I keep 2 of them but I am looking for someone that wants one too, if you live in europe I will ask only 7,50 euro for one including shipping.

PM, who makes those bikers the one with the beer bellie looks great on that motorcycle

I also just put in some bets for various hotwheels bikes   :D

Pity, the best and most interesting ones are only shipped to the US...

What is the bike in question here called?

The "Chopper" type ones I have used are Hotwheels "Outlander Blastlane" bikes.
The "other" ones in the range are a little hard to convert/use.

The bikers are indeed a combination of Em4 and Copplestone. I adapted them to fit on the bikes using plastic ork legs and scratchbuilt arms/hands.
