Thanks for sharing. I really like the motorbike, and the transparent angel wings works very well for so few colors.
The site flat2d that hosts translation of japanese pixel programs has put online an archive of similar images for study, but as a big archive (page here). Hosted images are much easier to study, you can for example pass them to the PJ specs tool for zooming and analyzing colors :

That's an interesting archive, but filled with lots of old and low quality pixel art. Given how many good looking games the system has, it is worth the effort of filtering them. I got these from some zips that circulate over the internet with pictures extracted directly from the games. Needless to say most of them are pornographic, but the art is gorgeous as everybody can see. And I'm still filtering them.

I hope these pictures inspire someone, for my part I hope to learn from them.

I see someone has been browsing 'jazzisthebestformofmusic' tumblr account. a friend of mine runs that, and I love the particular PC98 shots he chose, even some of the weirder ones.
