the new long travel chassis is finally done and its working great! Here are a few pics
That is one hell of a rear suspension, how much does that swing arm weigh? looks really beefy? how much travel front and rear?!?!?!?
Its got 22" of rear travel and 18" up front with these shocks (longer ones are being built and will allow 22" up front as well) The +8" swingarm weighs 16.5 lbs. which is only a few lbs heavier than my old +6" square tube swingarm, but it should be a lot stronger
Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a piece of work! cant stop thinking about that rear suspension it looks so well built. congrats
Nice work. That is sick. I love how the paint was carried over into the seat embrodery.
This is probably one of the nicest looking dune bikes I've ever seen. Looks real cool.
WOW!!! How does the rear shock work being layed down so flat? Spring rate? It looks pretty sick but....its a Bansee! LOL!
the shock works killer, it was custom built by elka for this setup. As for the banshee part, we're working on building these long travel frames for the 4-stroke bikes as well as a full custom version that can accept any motor you want like an XR650 or something along those lines
Is this one of those Travel-X frames? It looks a lot like the frames Sundahl builds.
I built the frame myself. Its definitely influenced by the sundahl frame with the crossing a-arms, but if you look close, its actually nothing like the sundahl frame other than that. This first one was built as mainly a dune/play bike for myself, but we are working on a couple more heavy duty race-ready chassis designs right now and Ill post up more pics as the project moves along
just wondering, everything looks sick and nice but why do you want so much travel on a drag banshee? do you have other plans for it?
its not a drag banshee, its just a dune bike. Its got an 8mm stroker motor with a Twister Small Block top end and its making around 110hp on pump gas. Basically I know that Ill never be able to afford a full-on trophy truck, so this is my little mini version haha Big power, big suspension travel, and attention to detail. To me, this is the ultimate dune bike, youd have to ride it to believe it
Oh, and did I mention, billet a-arms? The first picture is the MasterCam drawing, and the last two are the prototype arm, being test fitted before anodizing and post-machining
Can't beat the power output of a two stroke!!!
Personaly I could do with out the paint job......It is nice just not may taste.
You did a great job with all the fab work it looks amaizing, among everything else I like the front bumper with the 4 trailtech HIDs....Very Cool
That could be the most incredible dunes bike I have ever seen. Congrats on riding that.
Are those eclipse lights? if so, did you have to change the stator on the banshee?? just wondering cuz i was thinking of adding two more of those exact lights! they are bitchin'!!
heres a pic of the finished billet a-arms... yes those are the eclipse HID lights and I did change the stator out to run them... Im still working out a few bugs in the wiring though, Im a fabricator, not an electrician lol
