tuned and running they can fetch 250-300 bucks. but some people go nuts on these and retrofit them with original blata parts, sometimes a whole original blata motor... Ive seen some people put a pretty penny into reps like these, all depending on how fast you want to go :p.

Thats a real Blata Origami. Even though they call it a replica, they still arent exactly the same... notice the differences in frame design? Also build quality is no where near the same...the Rep still a very fun bike to work with though.

Also, you will never find a real blata origami for 150$ haha

again, depends how fast you want to go. You can do minor mods, and make what you have reliable, which probably wouldent set you back any more than 200-300$, or go full euro on the parts and make this thing a screamer. Genuine Blata motors start around 700$ new, and can be modified a great deal. Just a BZM 5 port 50cc top end kit will run you up 350$... if you can find one. 250$ for a FC BZM Gold Crank, another 100$ for a racing BZM clutch... I could go on... there is so much possible.. Ied start by finding out what condition the motor you have is in, and trying to get it to run, to get a proper jist of how these machines work. Then think about performance mods.

I've seen a B1 rep like this with over 2000$ in mods put into it.

Hello mate, my first post and thought I'd start here... Same bikes as I just picked up but mine was a lot cheaper... The guy just wanted rid of it. Only thing that concerns me... Yours should have 2 front disc brakes... Or have you taken it off?

Cheers, Dan.

My C1 has dual brake calipers but when I bought the new C1 front forks they asked one or two front disc. I can't find the 2nd added disc caliper on the left side on any parts place for PB Parts.

Your right it is an upgrade, early years one disc, later years two. The new C1 forks I got cost $1 more for the 2 brake bottoms, you can just buy the alum bottom piece w/ caliper mounts for the other side, but then you need a double cable holder, and the caliper I can't find. The new forks I put on my A2 framed 40cc Polini Cag.

Thanks for the info on that!
Finished stripping down my callipers last night and re-fitted. Took a little work to balance out the brakes... Until I found out the little screw & nut does most the work doh!!... Anyway... I'm just a paint job away from getting mine out of the Garage for its first run with me aboard!! 😊
