Well Its finally time to re do my 89 banshee. I hope to get it done by thanksgiving but if not it will be completely torn apart and gone through after. I just picked up a set of 12 inch wheels and tires. (Sand setup) And a set of yellow fullbore plstic. I also got a bunch of other little odds and ends. Im planning on powder coating the frame black. It should look clean once its finished. I will be updating whenever new parts come in or progress is made.

Here is what I am starting with

Yeah, they are pretty nice. Only thing I wish is they were wider. They are only 7 inches wide, I wish they were 8's or 10's. But oh well. Should look sweet mounted on the bike. Im hoping to get time to mount the other 3 today. It only took me about 5 min to get that one mounted.
