"APRIL 2001 PROJECT"

** CUSTOM BUILD OF A "MONSTER" GORILLA ** THE PAGE TAKES A MINUTE TO LOAD, PLEASE WAIT-- THANK YOU !!!




NOW HERE IS A VERY "SPECIAL" BIKE FOR A VERY SPECIAL PERSON, GREGOR TOERZS. GREGOR GREW UP IN HAMBURGH GERMANY, AND HAS SINCE MOVED TO THE U.S. AND IS NOW A VERY SUCCESSFUL HOLLYWOOD ACTOR. HE FLEW HIS CHILDHOOD GORILLA BIKE OVER HERE, AND WANTS TO NOT JUST RESTORE IT, BUT TO BUILD SOMETHING VERY "UNUSUAL" AND AS HE SAYS: " LET'S MAKE IT FAAASSST ", AND WITH THIS CUSTOM 4 SPEED, CLUTCH 110CC MOTOR IT WILL BE INDEED.
WE WILL HAVE SOME "FUN" HERE, SO PLEASE COME BACK OFTEN, AND CHECK OUT THE PROGRESS...
** SOON TO BE: A CUSTOM "MONSTER" GORILLA.**


BELOW YOU CAN SEE A COUPLE OF PICTURES OF WHAT THE BIKE LOOKS LIKE TODAY, PRIOR TO US BUILDING IT TO IT'S NEW "GLORY".
THERE ARE SOME PICTURES AS WELL OF SOME OF THE GREAT PARTS THAT WE ARE USING, TAKEGAWA, DAYTONA AND MORE...

** PLEASE CLICK ON PICTURES ABOVE TO ENLARGE **

WELL AS YOU CAN SEE THIS IS QUITE A PROJECT INDEED, ALL THAT WILL BE USED ON THE NEW "MONSTER GORILLA" WILL BE THE OLD FRAME AND TANK (VERY SENTIMENTAL ITEMS). THE FRAME/TANK AND HEADLIGHT BUCKET ARE ALL OUT FOR STRIPPING & CUSTOM METALLIC SILVER PAINT. AND ABOVE ARE SOME OF THE NEW PARTS WE ARE USING, CLICK ON ANYONE TO ENLARGE..

I WILL ALSO POST THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS, JUST IN CASE SOMEONE ELSE OUT THERE MIGHT NEED SOME HINTS...
** AND SO IT ALL BEGINNS, CHECK BACK SOON AGAIN FOR MORE. **



AND AS ALWAYS, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL OUT THERE IN "MONKEY & MINI LAND" PLEASE JUST EMAIL ME ON THE LINK BELOW.

WELL WE ARE GETTING VERY VERY CLOSE TO HAVING IT COMPLETED... SO PLEASE CHECK BACK IN JUST A FEW DAYS, FOR SOME MORE *KILLER* PICTURES !!


WELL GREGOR HAS JUST RETURNED FROM FILMING HIS LATEST MOVIE, IN SOUTH AFRICA, AND HIS VERY FIRST VISIT, WAS TO "THE MONKEY MAN"...
WELL BY THE LOOKS ON HIS FACE, HE SURE SEEMS VERY VERY HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOME SO FAR, BUT IT IS NOT QUITE DONE AS YET, THE FENDERS WILL STILL HAVE TO BE PAINTED, AND A FEW OTHER LITTLE ITEMS WILL BE ADDED.
SO PLEASE CHECK BACK REALLY SOON, AND THIS LITTLE "MONSTER" WILL BE READY FOR SOME TEST RUNS !!!
REMEMBER: CLICK ANY PICTURE BELOW, AND ENLARGE IT...

WELL THE ** BIG ** DAY IS HERE,,,FINALLY WE FINISHED THE BIKE, IT HAS BEEN A LABOR OF *LOVE*, AND SURELY SHOWS MY PASSION FOR THIS HOBBY OF MINE. AS I SAID, I STARTED WITH THESE CRAZY BIKES BACK IN THE 60'S, GROWING UP IN STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, AND MY PASSION HAS NEVER GONE AWAY... I AM JUST HAPPY THAT I WAS ABLE TO HELP GREGOR, TO REALIZE HIS DREAM, AND EVEN MORE SPECIAL THAT THE BIKE STARTED OUT AS HIS CHILD-HOOD BIKE, BACK IN GERMANY, AND WE USED A FEW OF THE ORIGINAL PARTS, AS TO KEEP SOME OF THE NOSTALGIA.

WELL SINCE THE COMPLETION OF THE *MONSTER* WE HAVE DONE ADDITIONAL SURGERY, GREGOR DECIDED, HE WANTED *MORE POWER* SO IN WENT A 125CC SUPER MONSTER MOTOR, AND A 26MM CARBURATOR, AND SOME DIFFERENT FRONT AND REAR GEARING. WE WILL BE ADDING SOME NEW AND UP-DATED PICTURES AS SOON AS GREGOR RETURNS FROM ONE OF HIS BUSINESS TRIPS TO GERMANY. IT REALLY LOOKS & PERFORMS FANTASTIC, NOW IT CAN REALLY BE CALLED A SUPER MONSTER....
NOW GREGOR, YOU ENJOY IT, AND PLEASE COME BY ONCE IN A WHILE FOR A VISIT !! I HOPE I GET LIBERAL VISITATION RIGHTS.....HE HE HE!!!
