    Sell them for huge money on eBay and replace?

    Convert monobikes into hoverbikes? Easy with some jetpacks.

    I was going to buy an old monobike and test convert it. So I should post my work here for you to see. As for your current dilemma I'd think using some leftover Remote parts would be good. Buying bits from a 40k kit/unit or another game might be a good idea. Warhammer has a good amount fo parts that could work great on the old monobike design. Even the wheels from the Marine (Chaos & Loyalist) biker units or some exotic Eldar (Craftworld & Dark) could spice the design up. Even the Tau's tech could hold some good pieces as well. Search ebay and see what you can find. window-box/blackdaggergames & Hoard'O Bits are good places to start searching.

    I'd keep them as is, but since you're asking ... Always thought it might be cool to replace the wheel with the old rafiq chicken legs. That might be too goofy for you, but I also think the new rem legs or even kameel legs would look cool too.

    You want to replace the bikes themselves? Zen Terrain has some interesting laser-cut bike models.
    But I have a feeling you'd have to cut / dremel the entire bike from under the rider...

    In that case I'll go ahead and order one and see what I can accomplish with it. Hope to have successful results from experimenting.
    I would also think you could use the old monobike bodies for remote conversions. Out of curiosity how many do you have on hand? Enough to use some as bikes and others as remotes?

    I only have 4 of the old monowheel bikers so not enough to convert to remotes, plus I already have a few chicken REM’s and a box of the new ones so I’m mostly covered for REM’s

    In that case I'll focus on a bike conversion first. Glad to hear that you have basically all the remotes you'll need for the faction. Plus outside of special faction remotes you can use those Haqq bots as any faction's basic remotes. They all share the same loadouts anyway.
