Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Bike Parts

The main task is to rebuild a motorbike so that you can escape with your daughter. Three of the parts need both hands to carry so you won’t be able to put them in your inventory and pull out a weapon.

Gasoline Canister (1 Hand):

This is near the petrol station pumps just outside the safehouse

Wheel (2 Hands):

This is found in the pawnshop which you will be able to access after saving Dick Jones

Engine (2 Hands):

The best way to get this is by going through the cinema out through the door to the right of the screen. The advantage of doing it this way is that you will have unlocked one of the doors for the “Locksmith” achievement

Bike Forks (2 Hands):

This is behind another locked door which you will need a key for. To get the key simply climb up to where the survivor “Bob” is shooting zombies from the roof. Head past him and jump across to the fire escape of the hotel. The key is in the last room. This key opens a shed which is up on the right hand side of the street towards the quarantine area. Before you head there though I would recommend climbing out of the window at the top of the stairs and then heading left across the rooftops and awnings until you get to the top of Bob’s Fish and Hunt. This store is locked and the only way to access is by dropping in through the roof. Once inside you can leave through the main door and this unlocks another door. The other advantage of opening this place up is the weapons inside. A special note goes to the broadsword which is a formidable weapon and is also required to get the last bike part.

Handlebars (1 Hand):

These will only be available after 3:00pm as one of the survivors is using them as a weapon. He won’t give them up unless you can give him a broad sword.

Bike Parts

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Locked Doors

The Cinema Alley Exit:

Head through the cinema and out of the door to the right of the screen

The Sherriff’s office:

Go past the Sheriff’s office and climb into the alley that runs behind the pawnshop and Sheriff’s office. Simply go into the Sheriff’s and walk out the front door

The Watershed:

You will need to get the key from the hotel. To get the key simply climb up to where the survivor “Bob” is shooting zombies from the roof. Head past him and jump across to the fire escape of the hotel. The key is in the last room.

Bob’s Fish and Hunt:

After grabbing the key for the shed climb out of the window at the top of the stairs and then work your way across the roofs until you are on top of Bob’s Fish and Hunt. There is an access point you can drop through. Again the door will open from the inside.
