Coast to Coast
That's crazy man. How do you even hear of using banshee parts lol....
It's no secret. Hugh from Hugh's Handbuilt did a write up on XS650chopper.com way back in 2012. Google XS650 PMA Banshee conversion and it'll probably pop up at the top of the page. He's been selling kits for a while, as does MikesXS. I assume Hugh came up with it. If not, and I were to guess, chopper guys may have figured it out even before 2012.

That's why the pipes are still bare metal.Hey, at least you got both rods and the ball for the clutch. I guess not expecting extras. Looking forward to the sound. I love a stock parallel twin's sound, although straight piped not so good. I'm thinking this will sound right.
Haha. The tri-rod is under a cover, just outside of my garage door and about ready to get finished. The plan was to get it ready for the Small Bore festival at Barber in June. It doesn't appear to have been cancelled yet.Would be perfect if he ever finished the tri-rod.
me too for anything longer than a few minutes or faster than 40 mph and I have a quiet bike and full face helmet. But that XS I'd need them just to kick it over.Not sure about you guys, but I usually ride with ear plugs anyway. Unless it's running to the gas station or something, but even then I still try to
