2005 Banshee MX Project


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

After some research I ended up ordering a pair of used Raptor 700 Front Calipers off eBay for $70:


I also ordered Alba Racing's new Adjustable 2+1 A-Arms that can switch between standard and long travel shocks. My wife's Banshee will be inheriting my LSR A-Arms once her rebuilt Works Dual Rate Shocks get delivered. 


One thing I was unable to find on here was a write up on how to weld in these JDS threaded peg inserts. I went and bought a welder and will do a write up if it turns out OK. Been a few years since I've welded anything lol.

More pics soon!!

Very easy...loco posted some good pics on how to weld those in.

Cool! Thanks! Glad to hear it's not too difficult. I bought the kit but will only need to use 1 for now. This winter I am considering powder-coating the frame. I'll probably do all four inserts when or if i do powder.

Man that thing looks ready! Not sure though why you went low profile seat? Also be nice if you had some long travel fox shocks!

Thanks!! Yea I wish I left the foam alone lol. Looks sweet though! I've got another seat I swap to on those longer rides. The low profile helps a little when dipping into the turns on a track. I swapped to those new Alba A-Arms that will allow me to switch to long travel eventually. Done putting $ into this one one for a while lol. That black Banshee is my Wife's which is also almost finished! Finishing the front end this weekend.
