Can be found here:Blata Elite 13 (http://www.marshs-loft.com/blata.html)

Obviously it needs to lose the eyes and that yellow front would be better off in silver, but I'll get to that in good time.

Sadly I won't get to test it until tomorrow at the earliest :( so the handlebars won't be getting moved just yet.....

I quite like that, still think I'll try by spraying the yellow bit silver as the rest don't look too bad.

No testing until tomorrow.

I've noticed a small leak from that exhaust manifold already, only way I'll know if it's a duffer is by running it.

That exhaust is illegal. It protrudes too much. Sorry.

Illegal in a 'you can't race type' sense or illegal in a 'you're a rude boy' type way?

Either way it makes far too much noise, and whoever put it on didn't do a great job of it. Still, it's nothing that can't be changed too easily.

Other than that, it seems to run quite well although I've not plucked up the courage to actually ride it yet. :eek:

Thought so, I hadn't seen the way the normal elite exhaust folds back on itself and I wouldn't want to be the person picking pieces of riders brains out of it after they impale themselves on it.

Crikey, this larks turning into a right expense what with the death of my normal blata again today. :confused:

They're metal with a plastic end, but I have the original blata ones.

I don't mind all this btw, I don't want to get to a track with the beast only to wreck the circuit or get told to clear off. :D
