Were these ever re-cut with a convex bubble on the waist to accept the current torsos? Or are they still the same old sprues I have from years past

I think they are still the same sprue, too expensive to recut probably, limited sales and all that.

Found a pic on a polish bitz site that shows the sprue, it appears to be still the same.

I bought a couple of bikes recently to flesh out my RW some more and the legs on the SM bike frame do have the convex waist and so fit the current plastic torsos.

I have a few chaos bikers and im pretty sure they have convex waists to fit the torsos.

The old ones 9original ones) had flat based torsos (head included) and flat hipped legs.

Current ones have a convex mount on the hips to take a normal SM torso (two part) and the head is separate as well.

Yes, it was recut. Minor changes, but it was redone.
