Re: Help to identify bike model
As far as I remember my history about pocketbikes the very early versions of the Polinis came out with a steel frame and the later versions aluminum whereas Blatas were built predominantly Steel frames and swingarms except for the B1 Ultimate that came with aluminum swingarm and seat frame...the mainframe is 100% steel.....
Ive never seen a blata with an all aluminum frame especially a B1/B2 or C1/C2.......
Heres an excerpt gleaned from the Blata website.......
Every carefully crafted part on the Origami B1 attests to the quality and performance that the Blata brand is known for. The larger three piece frame has a cast steel-composite core and high tensile steel tubing front and rear. The front fork has also been reinforced with cast steel-composite clamps. Allowing a better riding position, this bigger frame makes all the difference during longer rides

My 2005 Polini 910 Carena bike is built with both frame types but yet to see the same with Blata B1/B2 , C1/C2.................
My 1999 Blata 2.5 had a similar steel frame as the later built Elite series machines..........
If the Giovanni company made their own version of the MT-A2 its quite possible they made a MT-A4 watercooled version aswell...
In any event I know the techs at Blata and Polini very well so I sent the side shot pic over to them to see what they say...........
