    besides different front shocks between the pics, i'm gonna take a stab that's a pitstop for a refuel in the southern Cali desert, and may be a Rob and Dean in the pic ?

    Along with this^^^^ I am going to say the larger fuel tank. From the front it looks like 2 "wings" on each side. It also is sitting very high, like they have super long shocks or something.

    Sundahl's tanks were made by Lance Schoonmaker. (which that tank is not) Dean did make the A-arms on it. However the A-arms are just replacements for what was on there. What you are looking at is a C & J banshee. C&J was a company in Fallbrook Ca that made aftermarket frames for motorcyclersas well as some oem frames for ATK. Sundahl raced C&J banshees for years. The frames used 250r style geometry in the front as well as moving the pivot points closer together. In the rear, they used a swingarm that offset an ohlins shock to one side with a custom intake that ran down the other side. No linkage. Everything made of chromoly. One of the guys that worked for C&J got his kid (who raced quads) a job there. That kids name was Doug Roll who would go one to build ATV parts from a shop across the parking lot... I think you guys have heard of Roll Designs. His original shop name was Doug Roll Design and Development (DRD&D)

    That C&J banshee was about the fastest best handeling quad I have ever ridin.

    So there is todays history lesson.....

    Dirty they were made between 1988 and 1992
    C&J in Fallbrook built them later became roll design Shoemaker did the tanks and air box Bill's pipe in Corona did the exhaust work.
    I own one and it's a real unicorn it has a Quadzilla 500cc engine by Duncan in it ridiculously soft suspension that will eat up anything
    With a 270 lb Rider on board
    StraightLine performance absolutely mind-blowing you literally hydroplane over whoops
    The very unique aspect of the bike was the A-Arms being angled back slightly... very similar geometry to a 250R it has Far More Travel and much lighter chassis
    Someone can talk me through how to put up a link for a photo I'll throw one up and show you

    Just found this after moving this is a photo of my old C&J framed 500cc Quadzilla.
    This shows the full floater Suzuki rear end that was later changed out to around twin bearing chromoly extended 2in
    Later received a full engine treatment by Duncan Racing one of their National kits just an incredible super light straight line monster ..
    Looking for some more build photos.. and for some of the real end product Evolution photos of it
    Not exaggerating when I say it would literally float over the train and it had the power to get you out of trouble fast Screenshot_2018-03-28-22-19-34.png
