Default ATV Quad-Bike Models?

Alright, so I'm a big fan of custom models made from real-world concepts i.e. Apache for a Vendetta, F-117 for a Lightning, Panzer IV for a Russ Vanquisher or Predator, etc. I was curious if anyone has seen some good 40k-scale (not necessarily 28mm but close) ATV's? By which I mean quads, 4-wheelers, mountain runners, whatever you call them. Think the style of the Mongoose from the Halo series (the only ones I found for Halo itself were 15mm). I don't know what I'd substitute them in for with my IG army (Rough Riders maybe?) but I'd love to model some. Anyone seen something like this? Or have any ideas for a conversion or home-made hack job?

It is not too hard to convert a pair of sm bikes into a single quad, i think there was one in this months conversion comp.

Check this out mate, 1:48 scale might well be exactly right

Conversion comp? Sorry I haven't had a lot of time to troll the website yet, I'm new to Heresy.

As for the second post with the suggestion, I'm looking for something less of a pack-mulish tractor and more of a racing or recon bike, like the Mongoose from Halo as I said. Something smaller.

In essence less of this:


And more of this:


I'm just looking for any tips on where I may find models similar to this, or any advice as to how I can custom job it. I'm still relatively new to modelling and I hate wasting resources trying to go through process of elimination.

I found this in the conversion section on this sitehttps://www.heresy-online.net/forums/...ad.php?t=19357
