I think it is Kamen Rider... It sounds pretty similar.

Does it? I don't know much about Kamen Rider, but I don't think there's a team and combining mechs involved.

And wasn't Kamen Rider a live-action series? The one I saw was anime and they don't wear any special costumes. The mecha and clothing felt very 80s like Dirty Pair, Macross, amd Saber Rider (w/o the special costumes). Thanks for the input!

...You know, this might be Megazone23. The third movie had a whole team of people in transforming motorcycles.

ian: Yes, Kamen Rider's a live action series. I didn't mention that because I find it hard to believe there's never been an anime adaptation for such a popular show.

Mmm, after checking it up, no, it's not Megazone 23 either; should have mentioned that earlier but I wasn't aware of part 3 or the transforming bikes there. As I recall each bike on the series I'm looking for can't transform into a mech; they can only combine into one big robot. And I believe it was a TV series, so it would likely have a lot more episodes. Anywayz thanks for the heads up on M23; I think I'll check it out again in the meantime.

That's most likely to be Galactic Gale Baxinger (Ginga Reppū Bakushingā).

Oh man now I'm confused. I could have sworn they weren't wearing any flashy costumes and that it was set on an industrial city, and yet the transformation sequence and their faces do fit in my memory. Maybe the inconsistency was because of the only episode I saw, in which the lady of the team (or a long-haired feminine guy?) dons some scuba gear to infiltrate a factory or something like that. I'm 90% sure this is it! watching the transformation sequence gives me nostalgic chills. Thanks!
