Blata emailed me back and told me to cut it....
I thought the European stuff was like the China lol. It’s definitely not worth sending back. So I will either cut it or maybe try to use it as a tach mount

Yeah I would love to have a Blata. Everything Euro in the u.s. is hard to come by.
I have one for sale all original except the paint I sanded down because of deep scratches but I rode it this morning clocked at 59 before I backed off. Had slippers on didn't feel like losing a toe or maybe I just pussed out lol it's fast blata b1 origami.

I have some color on the motor. I went with a VHT engine enamel in anodized silver.
Started out with some degreaser and a wire wheel on a dremel. A red 360 grit scuffing pad fit in between the fins pretty good and sandpaper on a wide popsicle stick works too.
Did 2 light and 1 medium coat of VHT engine enamel primer, let sit for a few days, scuffed with a 800 grit pad and shot 2 light and 1 medium coat of color. I may scuff and re-shoot color just to build it up but it looks good as is.
Fairings in Ducati red should be done next week

She's 95% done! Just need to get some decal to represent the bikes below. I needed up spray bombing the front caliper because it would not come apart. It looks to Autozone for me so I will swap it out for a better looking one.
