(Bikerboss: relicblade.
Biker command: company champion, and two bikers with power weapons.

Bike squad: 5 bikes, powerfist, 2 meltaguns, attackbike with multi-melta.
Bike squad: 4 bikes, 2 plasmaguns, attackbike with multi-melta.
Tac squad: 5 marines, plasmaback transport.

Tornado speeder (flamer/melta).

2 dakka predators.)

Fragile, compact, and kinda small.
Bike marines only work at 2k points, first of all.
If you're going there, okay. If instead just planning on running a mix of stuff, well...

The 1500 list is a bit better, but all biker veterans should have plasmaguns (it's effective, ignores feel no pain, lower-than-average death-rate, etc.), and have a fair few claws thrown in. A single hammer/powerfist is always mandatory for commands.
Remove the plasma on the bike squad. Yeah, it's rare, but they do run the risk of killing themselves, and they're very expensive.

You need to add more armor and guns, buddy. Plasmabacks, a third predator, dreads, sternguard in rhinos - hell, even scout bikes.
If you were really looking to do fulll biker marines, you have to go up to 2k.
