Review of the 2005 Malaguti Grizzly 12:
kick ass grizzly
Author: Harvey, 2006-12-28|
i first found my grizzly in my shed when i moved in my shed.
i looked at and thought it had potential.
i striped it down and refurbished the bike taking me jest over 4 months
when my kids saw the bike, they thanked me and have had hours of fun on the bike
when i found the bike, i got all my equipment to my shed to put it inside it as i had moved in the house|
i found the bike and took the name ´malaguti ´ and´grizzly´ and looked them up on the internet to fined parts all over the net, but the parts were not easy to fined.
i found out it was a malaguti grizzly 12 as it had a drum breake on the front, not a disc.
i got a new shed in order to fix the bike and to put other tools in.
first of all, i took the engine out and put it aside.
i got the frame powder coated and new pladtics for on the bike.
i did not have a lot of knowledge for gears in bikes, so i called my friend who does car gear boxs.
he striped it down and got new gears for the bike.
he put ne gasgits for the bike and that cost me 180 pound and had a discount aswell.
i put the engine on the bike frame and a new exhaust on the engine and the old old fuel tank with a bit of fuel in it and kick it over 4 times and it started up and sounded so nice.i let it run for 4 minutes and that motivated me even more to get the bike fished.
i worked on it in to the night putting the new plastics and back swing arm on to find i had finished the back end of the bike.
the next day, i put the front forks on the bike and front wheel, then putting the bike in my van and driveing to my mates field, where me n my mate had 2 hours of fun.
the only propblem i had was when i had to fill up.
but the bike was a frill
when the bike went off i had a pride in my self and my mates said ´ you have done well with this´ which i was happy with and now the bike sits there to to be used and treted with the best of care
