This is from the 1963 Chevy Fleetside Pickup which shows all the parts labeled meaning they were all included I believe.  I have the motorcycle but am missing the Streamlined Body Halves and Racing Windshield it seems.

No current kit has this Triumph motorcycle or the go-kart. The parts pack that you linked to is a pair of dirt bikes. 

Stevens International and HobbyLinc list an upcoming release of the AMT 60 Chevy pickup with a go-kart, but there has been no formal announcement from Round2.

The Go Kart with the '60 Chevrolet Pickup  is a "go", even though it has not been formally announced as correctly pointed out by Craig.  It is a combination restoration of the original tooling/reproduction of the unit in the original '63 Apache kit.  TB

Sorry, i wasn't trying to be a jerk. The rest of the thread was specifically about the Triumph bike(and go-kart). But there have been quite a few motorcycles included in kits over the years. I'm reluctant to start a list here for fear of distracting from the original topic. Thank you for trying to contribute though. Maybe start a new thread where we can list all the motorcycles included in 1/24 and 1/25 kits?

Many kits come with extra stuff, whether it be just some cool extra parts,i.e. engine stand and bare block in the AMT Nova kits or complete accessories as denoted on the box top, boat and trailer, bike and trailer. 

Here's one with a complete bicycle inside, AMT 1929 Ford Woody/Pickup, not sure how to tell from the exact same kit that doesn't have the bike. :(

The Model A kit had a 413 MOPAR engine with the over the top cast iron headers. The engine wouldn't fit in the car, it was an extra.:rolleyes:

I think that pretty much every version of the MPC Chevette came with this Diorama set of crew men and a canopy

AMT '61 and '62 Buick Special station wagons, packed with lots of bonuses including a really nice U-Haul type trailer.  The Buicks were curbsides with no opening hood or engine. To make up for that, AMT threw in an early Chrysler Hemi with multiple options and an A-frame hoist to hang it from. I wonder how many of us hacked open the Buick's hood to try and make that Hemi fit?

Many of those bonuses were also in the original '63 Nova wagon kit. The fuel cans, fire extinguisher, tool box, racing helmet and Hemi engine were still around years later in the "Boss Nova" '63 Chevy Nova wagon dragster.  I think the A-frame hoist and trailer are gone forever, though.

I have that trailer w/ one of my Buick wagons.  Don't have the engine hoist.   IIRC, one or more of the MPC '68-69 Coronets also had a uHaul style trailer.  None of mine have it.

Should look like this for the most part, though I would think the cross-bed carrying supports might be modified if needed?:

Ken, I would like to apologize for what ever happened here to hijack YOUR "Incomplete Bonuses" found in kits thread.

I had only thought of all the other "Complete Bonuses" found in other kits, obviously a distinction some here have missed. Again I apologize.

Carl, scroll up the page and read Tim's confirmation that the go-kart is being reissued in combination with the AMT '60 Chevy Custom Fleetline pickup kit within the next few months.
