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.

You guys have no idea the trouble it's been to find and then get the right size decals for this bike. OMG it was almost easier to rebuild to while rest of the bike. I have installed some of the graphics but need to source out the group of 4 stickers on the main fairing and make the white tail patch out of vinyl still.
Do you think I should add the blata decal to the tank or not?

Love the decals!! I know what you mean. Measurements always seem to be off when buying the decals. If I was to put blata on the bike I honestly might put it on the nose.
