In Dead Rising 2, after defeating the psychopath Leon Bell during the mission Meet the Contestants, Chuck acquires a key to Leon's Combo Bay and a green dirtbike.

In Off the Record, after defeating the psychopath Chuck Greene during the mission People Like Us, Frank also acquires a key to the Combo Bay and a green dirtbike.[1]

The dirtbike, located in the Combo Bay on the Silver Strip's north end, will respawn every time the player enters another area with a load screen.

Tutorial screen:

Chuck is an ex-motocross racer and can modify motorbikes in a variety of ways.
Bring a bike to the Combo Bay and combine it with weapons or paint.
Experiment with different combinations and ride in style!

The dirtbike is the only vehicle the player can customize with new paint jobs or modifications. The player cannot paint the Chopper or the Mercenary Bike.

The following is a list of every item that the player can combine with the bike:[2]

  • Chuck can find the weapons needed to make the Rocket Launcher at the start of Silver Strip, just next to the entrance to the Slot Ranch Casino.
  • The Bazooka Bike cannot be crafted using the Rocket Launcher obtained from the mission World's Most Dangerous Trick.
