    trying to make a list of all the TF's that were on 2 wheels! I have a goal of creating a TF themed motorcycle, and looking something to base it off of, and I need your help, its a cafe racer (an older style bike - not even close to a crotch rocket)

    I don't know of any TF's that were based on Cafe racer style bikes, though I guess you could customise Chromia to make it sort of cafe style. I recall there was a G2 mold planned that was an old Yammy (Road Rocket), which I think was intended to be repainted and named Jazz but was never released. That got remoulded as an RID, and again as a ROTF Scout release. In the same series was Road Pig, which I think is supposed to be some Harley Davidson monstrosity (Tractor?).
    There was also that Protectobot, though his name escapes me (I think it was Groove?).

    EDIT: Are you building an actual cafe racer for on the road? If so, i'd definitely be interested to see how it turns out!

    There was not a G2 mold released for the ROTF line.

    OP,there have been quite a few motocylce TFs,off the top of my head:
    G1 Groove
    G1 Override
    G2 Road Rocket
    G2 Road Pig
    RID Axer
    RID Sideways
    Armada Sideways
    Energon Arcee
    Cybertron Lugnutz
    ROTF Elita-1
    ROTF Chromia
    ROTF Arcee
    ROTF Scout Reverb

    That's all I can come up with off the top of my head.

    To get 'em all, that's gonna be a big list. But here, maybe this will help... TFU.info has a nifty feature where you can search by color and then by alt mode:

    Red Motorcycles
    Orange Motorcycles
    Yellow Motorcycles
    Green Motorcycles
    Blue Motorcycles
    Purple Motorcycles
    White Motorcycles
    Black Motorcycles
    Brown Motorcycles
    Grey/Silver Motorcycles


    I would just go through and look for an alt mode that you like the look of, then go from there. :)  Although, be warned, there's a few Gobots in there, so don't fall in love with one of those if you only want a TF-themed bike! (Mind you, I love Gobots, and Cy-Kill has gotta be one of the most iconic motorcycle robots.)

    There were a couple of Actionmasters, too, who didn't turn into motorcyles but rode them:

    Axer
    Prowl

    Although I have to say, for pure Transformers goodness, don't forget one of the most beloved moto-bots... Wreck-Gar! Nice mellow, old-fashioned color scheme too, all tans and browns and bronzes.

    Good luck!

    Actually, G2 Road rocket was heavily re-tooled to make Scout Reverb, via RID Sideways. Not that it's that important.
    DUUDE, I totally forgot Wreck Gar!

    Show me proof,there is no way in hell that Hasbro would retool a G2 mold into a movie mold,it would take too much money.

    Yeah, and Energon Starscream was a retool of G2 Smokescreen, G1 Cliffjmper was a retool of Bumblebee, the Screen Battles "Final Stand" Bumblebee figure was a retool of RObot Replicas Bumblebee... Retooled from scratch!

    wow those links are sweet! i didn't even know that existed! Thanks alot! and ya my first thoughts were of Wreck Gar, then i started gravitating toward a similar style to ROTF armorhide, i just like that toy's color and rugged look...but now im thinking of trying to stick true to an original tf bike (instead of just TF themed)....i was thinking sideways as well, but thx to your links i'll be able to decide much easier...once i go through all the pages.

    Depending on how minor and obscure you want to go, there's also the Micromaster Protectobot Groove from the Universe line.

    And of course there's Beast Machines Trust and the Cycle Drone.

    And if you want to get really out there, Transmetal Tarantulas.
